  • 28" Damascus steel blade
  • Traditional handle wrap of genuine ray skin and brown nylon cord
  • Intricately detailed zinc menuki and tsuba
  • Powerful full-tang construction
  • 40 3/4" overall length

This full-tang Zatoichi packs a powerful 28-inch Damascus steel beast of a blade with razor-sharp edges that will slice through virtually anything with ease. Each blade is hand forged and folded to produce more than 2,000 layers of top-quality Damascus steel for unsurpassed performance. The blades are then oil quenched to produce a high-strength functional blade that is razor sharp.

True to its Zatoichi heritage, this sword features a cast zinc tsuba and pommel and a shiny brass menuki for authentic styling and attention to detail. The handle is covered in ray skin and graciously wrapped in heavy cording, giving this stunning sword a custom, one-of-a-kind look and feel. The lacquered wooden scabbard houses this formidable blade in true Zatoichi fashion.

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.

This is a great sword for the money! it is very well made and feels really good holding/swinging it. And yes, you can swing it fully without worry of breaking. one flaw i had with it is that in the picture on this website is that it showed the sword having a bend like a regular katana. It is Strait!!!! i should of assumed it was due to the double edge but overall its a great sword

Excellent sword

My first sword and Very pleased. I did a lot of research and shopping before settling on this one. I didn't want a cheap one but not the most expensive. I wanted quality above all, also I wanted history in style, construction and battle ready if needed of which I hope will Never ever be the case but if I do this sword is well up to the task. I've been collecting knives and hatchets, axes, tomahawks 40 years so I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable to quality and usage. You always get what you pay for and this sword is worth it!
