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.

Cheap Shaft

Handled nice, beautiful, but the shaft material was poor and broke in half in a little over 2 weeks. Close examination revealed a knot at the fracture point with +50% of the wood grain going across the shaft rather than along the shaft.

This is an affordable version of a Yari or Ko Yari on the Japanese style of Most do not know or have proper training of most weapons if you are going to chop trees or throw it like a spear then you deseve to have the shaft broken it would be comparable if you were to pick up a katana and cut cord wood its not going to happen this may not be socketed like a true Yari of high japanese descendentry but it is a good and sturdy tool just the same

spear is meh. bought one from trueswords (you guys) and the tip was weak, it bent from 4 layers of cardboard, i mean, come on now. the blade is KINDA sharp, compared to, say, cold steel, its like a butter knife. honestly wouldve been cheaper and better to buy a spear from coldsteel.? ive only owned 2 coldsteel products that were purchased AFTER i purchased this, and i can honestly say that i am NOT impressed by shinwa, there are many other spears out there cheaper or the same price that are much better quality, im not sure how shinwa swords are but their spear is kinda crap, not bashing, telling my honest opinion, honestly not impressed by shinwa, i gave it some time to prove me wrong and the edge dulls far too quickly, the tip was gone literally the first day and it was on legitamately just cardboard, nothing else, wouldnt buy this thing again

Novice Reviewers

It has always been Shocking for me to read reviews written by guys that know nothing about swords, knives, and spears. Again, after reading the reviews of the Shinwa Spear all I can do is shake my head and feel sorry for the lack of education among those many that are confident in writing reviews when most of you obviously have no training or skill. Again, after the bad reviews I had to test this spear, I purposely abused the hell out of it. To date I have thrown my spear over two hundred times, The spear has grassed off my target several times and hit a steel pole dead on leaving a small hole in the pole. Now with all things, if you use it you must maintain and repair. I have glued the blade back on several times, and have had to tap the blade straight again, just the tip, but the tip remains intact and the entire blade is still whole and functional. As for the shaft it remains in one piece and in good shape. The Ito remains tight without fray or tare. My conclusion is if your afraid to use it, Spear, Sword, Knife, don't waist your money on a dust collector. Thank you, Daniel of Nebraska. P.S. Try your spear, it's great fun.

Not good

The blade is not completely parallel with the shaft, thrusting with this would be a bit off from what it supposed to be.. The handle is made out of some extremely light and flimsy feeling wood. The blade is dull on both the edge and the tip Overall i'm unhappy with what i revived for the price i payed.

The spear blade is OK as described, the shaft, however is not Elm but cheap hollow plastic I will never believe another description on true swords and probably will not purchase from them again
Response: The shaft is indeed elm. We cut the shaft in half to check. Elm is a very lightweight wood, but it is very strong. But if you are not satisfied with the product, you may return an item within 60 days of purchase. You can contact us at 1-800-735-3326 to obtain a return label for your package. Thanks!

Shinwa Red Warrior Spear Damascus with Sheath

If it were not how beautiful the overall appearance of this spear, I'd almost give it a 3. Why? Because of the hollow plastic handle. The Spear Head or blade is huge, well shaped and very nice quality. Razor Sharp. The wrapping or design is top knotch for the price. It's that darn hollow plastic handle that keeps it out of the 5 category. I am afraid to throw it at anythingfor ffear it'll break. . A quick shout out to budk for the SUPER FAST delivery time of just over 24 hours without me paying anything extra. Thank you Thank you

serves its purpose

when the spear arrived, i loved the blade. very sharp and durable. the shaft is rather light, and may brake if used to block. but should be fine for throwing or thrusting. it is a little front heavy, but that fits my throwing style. for me, it is acurate well past 20 yards. overall, i am pleased with the spear, but for the money, it should have a better shaft.

Exceptional and Fully Functional

I bought the Shinwa Spear with the intention of selling it, after reading the reviews I decided to fully test this spear and test it hard. I threw the Shinwa spear well over a hundred times, I used it like a pike and jabbed at a cross section of a pine tree trunk. The Shinwa Spear took all the abuse I could give, it stood up well the blade bent a little bit at the tip but was easy to tap back into place using a small ballpeen hammer I even threw the spear with the tip bent and it never failed to stick in the target, the shaft has a couple of scuff marks but no damage what so ever, the cord wrap is still perfect. Overall the Shinwa Spear is very well made and of excellent quality. Whether you want to use this spear for decoration or use it in weapons practice you will not be disappointed. Thank you Daniel of Nebraska.
