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.

Hot Knife Reviewed by Mike B on May 12, 2015   5 out of 5

ive wanted a katana for years! Not a stamped steel POS. A battle ready Katana. I just got done cutting every plastic bottle in my house! I must say after 20 plus bottles. The blade is still tight in the handle. No nicks or blowouts. I could not be more pleased with it. It looks cool and is functional as a weapon! My wife already told me to put it away before I hurt myself!

it great Reviewed by Riley on Aug 01, 2014   5 out of 5

It took a wile to get here but it was worth it, its a beautiful blade with tight wrappings and well painted sheath. The blade I got was sharp but not all the way down, what i mean by that is that the tip is vary sharp but the farther you go down the blade the less sharp it is until you get to the bottom and its dull.the quality is just as its being told by the company, the only complaint i have is that when it came to my house the paint at the bottom of the sheath was scratched off. all in all its great, and for the price of a hand forged sword its amazing

Very nice, and very dull. Reviewed by Bryan on Jul 22, 2014   4 out of 5

I own a lot of blades & Shinwa swords are among the best I've handled. Unlike most companies Shinwa delivers as promised by far the sharpest right from the packaging. And definitely not those garbage pressed blanks.

Shinwa Regal Reviewed by Daniel Voges on May 05, 2013   5 out of 5

The Shinwa Regal is one of the finest swords you will ever own. It's not just the beauty of the blade or entire sword it's also a very strong and powerful sword. Just so you know the tang of the sword is not Damascus,this is normal Damascus steel takes so much time to produce they do not waist it on tangs,this includes Damascus knifes as well. You can't go wrong buying a Shinwa. Thank you Daniel of Nebraska.

WOW Reviewed by Ken on Apr 26, 2013   5 out of 5

Ordered this sword for my wife's birthday. She has another katana, but the beauty and quality of this Shinwa Purple Damascus Katana was amazing. It was plenty sharp out of the box, the layers and color of the damascus are SWEET. She loves it, me too. Not all women want a katana, but for those special few this is worth every dollar. Thanks Shinwa and BUDK..........
