    Rare and extremely difficult to find! This collector's edition Shinwa Samurai Warrior Katana offers a powerful, full-tang Damascus steel blade crafted in the traditional katana design. Each blade was meticulously heat forged and hand folded using ancient, time-honored tempering techniques that give each piece a custom, one-of-a-kind look and feel. Each one features a hand-sharpened edge and a piercing point just like those carried by Samurai warriors centuries ago.

    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.

    I recommend this sword for sword buyer Reviewed by Tairyn Saffer on Oct 08, 2017   5 out of 5

    Once I get past the fact that i paid for and bought the sword 2 days before it went on a 50% off sale, its was pretty good. It isn't very sharp and doesn't cut well, but the blade is of a very high quality and will last forever if taken care of. Before I got it sharpened, I took it to a battle test where we go full speed sparring competition style. It withheld zero damage during battle and only a few minor scratches. This Damascus Steel blade, once sharpened able to cut through bamboo stalks, real Tatami mats, and even all the way through a cow thigh. I recommend this sword to anybody that's getting started as the blade will last a long time and once you are ready, you can get it sharpened.

    Beautiful Sword Reviewed by jesus mendez on Jan 12, 2017   5 out of 5

    Isnt a black blade like it shows but it is stunning none the less. Sharp and gorgeous to look at. The pattern on the blade is nice to look and the blade is well balanced and built. Standard shipping took 6 days to get it less than the 7-10 quoted. A good blade with some good craftsmanship. Thank you guys for a great product.

    The first thing I did after unwrapping layer after layer (which is a good thing when shipping such a delicate item) was cut myself. This is a stunning blade, the patters end up unique for each one, and the one I received had an amalgam of designs that were symmetrical yet full of novelty. It took a little bit of cleaning the blade and adding oil to it to get a shine but that is no issue and is expected. The service and the shipping were phenomenal. I ordered on a Sunday and received it the following Wednesday afternoon with a standard option. Stellar. Shinwa does not lie with the sharpness and TrueSwords does not lie with its service. Thank you all.
