Shinwa swords have a quality standard like no other and this one is no exception! This exquisite Knights Dragon katana features a heat-forged Damascus steel blade that has been folded more than 2,000 times for pure cutting power with a heavy blood groove in the traditional katana design. The hardwood handle offers faux ray skin in with black nylon cord wrap, brass menuki, and cast zinc tsuba. The wooden scabbard is a glossy black with a water transferred green dragon design.
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.

Exactly what I wanted. Beautiful design. A little heavier than I expected, but balances out perfectly
Received the item in the mail today thoroughly impressed I love the dragon design bright but I love it.... it is solid, sturdy and sharp thanks again BUDK
Thanks for a chance for an average Joe to own a Real Sword! This Shinwa Knights Dragon Katana is Beautiful and Well-Made for the price ! Thick Damascus Steel that feels right and able to defend ones Honor at a Moment's notice! Do the research and listen to the good stories about the " Quality and Reputations "of Shinwa Swords ,you won't be Disappointed
A very nice katakana, a huge step up from the stuff you'll find on amazon!
However the dragon design is MUCH more distracting in real life.
The transfer and detail is GREAT! but unlike the photo, the outline is Neon Green.
The sword can with a slight edge out of the box, so it's not dull, but if you plan on cutting anything, you'll want to spend some time sharpening it.
Out of all the katanas I own in this price range this came the best feeling and still solid as a rock years later and I've used it to cut some stuff here and there, very cool looking blade, not too much a fan of the Dragon on the scabbard but oh well it's all super solid and worth it
5 stars sword arrived today, was left out on the steps in front of my home. rain soaked box was torn but the inside box was in fairly good shape, open the sword box and it is a beauty to look at and is a real sword for real use. I love the color of it and the pattern of the steel is wonderful , spent a couple of hours following the instructions on how to dry it then re- oil it and it is a beauty in all ways . i have to admit was a little nervous about it but the quality of this is outstanding.. I will reorder soon thank you it is not a wall hanger It is ( sorry for the pun) a true sword in every way I Love it
My first time buying this sword and holding it for the first time was the best experience. The sword is amazing and I never seen a Damascus steel sword this close to finally owning one. I will buy another one, it's worth the money for such a sharp and beautiful sword to have in your collection.
sword is perfect in every way sharp out the box.
I have always wanted to have a small collection of unique Katans, and this sword is my first ever sword purchase. I really like it. My two critiques of this sword is that the pegs done at the handle were shotty and I will have to get that fixed and the Tsiah was a one size fits all with a lot of slop. Other then that, all parts were metal and of good quality, the sword feels heavy and strong in the hand, the etching was well done (complete with serial number), and the paint job on the Tsiah was AWESOME! Yes, I would recommend this sword to a low end buyer.... like me who just wanted one to see if I liked it as much as I thought I would. I DID! Everything came as advertised, and the people behind the web site took good care of me and answered all my questions. I will buy from these guys again.
Really nice for the money. Sure Shinwa is not as good as my Cold steel or Hanwei swords I own but I paid a heck of a lot more for them. Over all for the price you could not get a better functional sword such as this that actually could be used in battle. I hear people cry â€œI dented my Shinwa swordâ€ what do you expect for a low price and hitting a hard target would do? Lol. If you want a sword that can take a ass whipping well you have tp pay ass whooping price. lol Over all though the swords are great for the price and I will definiatly buy more Shinwaâ€™s in the future.
