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 stunningly beutiful sword Reviewed by on Jun 13, 2018   5 out of 5

What an exelent work of art ! I'd highly recommend this sword for new collectors.



Love this sword Reviewed by Joshua Furby on May 03, 2018   5 out of 5

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 Reviewed by on Apr 26, 2018   5 out of 5

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!



Shinwa Regal Katana Teal Sword Damascus $69.98 Reviewed by Bob Jetton on Apr 13, 2018   5 out of 5

Worth every penny at $69.98. The edge will need some work to bring to truly sharp if that is what you're after but the real hard work was already done by someone who knew what they were doing. Very nicely made for twice what I paid. Shipped triple boxed as noted below with the inside being a nice wooden presentation box as Chinese manufacturers are known to do. My only complaint is that the presentation box is broken directly under where the tsuba sits. Could have happened anywhere along the way and there was no damage to the outer shipping box. Customer service happily offered to swap my sword/box for a new one or I could return it for a full refund but I'm very happy with everything else and did not want to bother with all that. Best return/satisfaction policy on the interwebs people. 60 days and you can say "Pffft I changed my mind". No chance I'm sending her back. I've owned many very nice knives in my lifetime but this is my first sword. I've wanted one for as long as I could read epic tales and have handled a few dozen from some real deal brought back after WWII to "holy cow this thing is cheap, and they want HOW MUCH?!?" The Shinwa Regal Teal is one of the best value swords I have handled in the under $200 price range. She may be my first, but she will NOT be my last! :) BTW this is how true Damascus blades were made. True Damascus was folded and that is where the pattern came from. This blade is crafted the same way. This blade has the true Damascus water patterns. The difference is nobody has been able to reproduce the composition of the steel used in true ancient Damascus blades. Those secrets have been lost to time. Few have even come close.



Well pleased! Reviewed by David Cobb on Apr 12, 2018   5 out of 5

This sword was received in a box inside a box inside a nice presentation bos with hinges. I have read some other reviews and can only presume to have the pick of the litter so to speak. Entire sword is nice and tight with zero wobble. It is straight as an arrow and nicely sharpened. This will NOT shave yet you do not want to run your finger tip along the blade lengthways. Unless you like getting stitches. Sword and scabbard fit securely. Sword has coating of oil. I can find zero imperfections in the blade be it rust or rolled edge or scratch. Like I say,,,maybe I got the pick of the litter. Now for the CON: it is heavy. Maybe it should be. I am not a swordsmith. With the two handed grip I know I can swing lethal arcs and block with confidence in this blade. But this is not a fencing sword for sure. The weight I will get accustomed to and be better for the effort I suspect. End of the day,,considering price too ($69.00),,,,this is easily a six out five stars.



Teal damascus Reviewed by Steven Newman on Apr 09, 2018   5 out of 5

Must say for 70$ im very pleased though its a little cheap looking it feels great. It is a little on the heavy side. But for the price i do believe you are getting a fully functional sword. I give it 5 stars.



Great sword Reviewed by Leroy Hilton on Nov 04, 2017   5 out of 5

Amazing Reviewed by Nathan Cote on Oct 31, 2016   5 out of 5

Just got my katana today, Ordered it on the 22nd of october so it was a bit before it finally got to me. Came very protected, a box inside a box inside a box. Box-ception. But the final box had latches on it to keep it from slipping open. Katana also came with a bag to hold it in. Blade was oiled to protect it from rust and its a decent weight in hang. Will definitely buy from Shinwa again!



Great Sword Reviewed by Shelley Gibson on Oct 05, 2016   5 out of 5

I'm pleased with my Katana... It has some weight to her though... the deep blood grove makes the sword worth the price... The Katana arrived to me in good shape, and had a nice coat of oil on the blade...the only problem the sword has is with the brass fitting... I didn't receive a decorative box... But over all, if I were given the choice again, I would buy it...



Katana Sword Teal Cord Wrap – 2000 Layers Reviewed by Shelley Gibson on Oct 05, 2016   5 out of 5

The sword arrived to me yesterday, and I must admit, i feel it is worth the money or monies... Sharp blade, full tang...I would rate this sword as 5 out of 5... I am happy with my decision to purchase this sword... The blade is slightly long, and shakes a lot to one side though, as long as this sword is 80.00, it's a deal
