hand forging samurai sword blades process

About Shinwa:

Shinwa swords are made by hand using traditional methods in the ancient sword-making township of Lonquan. The sword-making history of this town can be traced back to the twentieth year of the Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty – exceptional sword making continues there still today. The swordsmiths of Lonquan can apprentice for up to six years before they begin to forge these functional works of art on their own.

Each Shinwa sword is hand forged at temperatures of up to 1,100 °F and continuously heated, folded, hammered and shaped before being oil quenched and then straightened. Damascus steel blades are folded as many as ten times to yield up to 2,056 layers of premium Damascus steel. After quenching the blade is then ground and hand sharpened and polished by the swordsmith on a series of wet stones. Each set of these wet stones contains a finer level of silicate particles, which produces an even sharper edge. In the final stages of this painstaking process, the tsuka is wrapped and tsuba and other fittings are added before a thin coat of oil is added to the blade to prevent corrosion.

great sword for the price Reviewed by on Apr 02, 2016   5 out of 5

I purchased this sword about a month ago and just got around to test cutting. The sword came nicely sharpened and the blade was well oiled out of the box which is always a plus. The blade is very easy to disassemble for maintenance. The ito wrap feels very nice in the hands though it could be me but the tsuka it self seems a bit thicker than my previous sword so handling it took a bit of getting used to. The sword cuts excellently and though i only cut a few targets i could the edge retention is quite good. point of balance is roughly 6'' from the tsuba for those interested. Very nice sword especially for the price range would definitely recommend this.
