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 Reviewed by Brandon Foiles on Aug 22, 2018   5 out of 5

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!

budk really outdid themselves sharp out of the box great quality

Worth every penny Reviewed by Chris Malicoat on Jul 16, 2018   5 out of 5

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 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.
