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.

A Gorgeous Blade

The moment I saw this sword I knew I had to get it. The teal ito, the damascus steel blade, and the tsuba are beautiful works of art. The gift box was nice, and in excellent condition. I only have 2 minor complaints. 1. The blade rattles in the saya, much like my 1060 carbon steel Musashi katana. It's nothing to worry about. 2. The habaki is loose, and slighly rattles, just like the T10 Shijian katana I bought on Amazon, for $170. Honestly, I expected no less, seeing as how the sword was selling for $70. Other than that, I absolutely love the sword! It has taken the #1 spot in my collection as my favorite katana!

Worth every penny

I was a bit skeptical about this sword at first because it was so cheap, but to my surprise this sword is very high quality. The blade came razor sharp and oiled. Comes in a nice box. When I first drew the sword I could feel how solid it was, nothing like the 40-50 dollar swords I’ve collected up til now. This sword is worth every penny spent. An excellent addition to my collection. This sword raises my expectations of future swords I will purchase. I would much rather have a sword of this quality than some of the ones I already own. If you’re considering this sword, it is without a doubt a great purchase.

Love this sword

I love this sword. This is my first katana, and boy am I impressed. The box it came in is very beautiful. I just wish it was the same color than the katana. This is my first Damascus steel to boot. You really hit it out of the ballpark this time, budk. Thank you.

Just received

This is a well made beautiful sword, glad I added it to my collection! Have not tested the full tang effectiveness, but I have tasted other shinwa full tang swords and they delivered great cutting abilities. Very happy with this product!
