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.

It was priced at $110 retail and on sale for $50 so I honestly did not expect much, especially after seeing so many other poorly constructed katana at a $100-$150 price range. I was pleasantly surprised.
The katana had a good heft and there was absolutely no rattle or wiggle in the whole length of it. Such looseness is a hallmark of cheap katanas.
In all knives and swords there is a fit and finish rating. For this katana the fit, the degree to which all parts meet and are mated, was very good. I would give it a B+. The finish, of course, is less. There are light grind marks and there is no mirror finish. The Habaki is ok but nothing but functional.
That is why I bought it. I wanted something to use as a bokken for training and as a training device to practice positions and strokes.
It looks absolutely beautiful
After scowering the internet for hours wondering if i was going to be dissapointed or not. I took a gamble and bought it at the close out price(amazing deal!) when it got here today. I looked at it and admired the beauty before i opened it. The blade is extremely sharp and i have no complaints other than the common trueswords signature "weird mucky stuff on the blade" a couple wipes off with a paper towel and it shows the real beauty of the blade!!
as stated before, the handle is rather wide and not comfortable to grip, but that is the only complaint I have on this sword.
it's solidly made and very appealing to the eye, if only it didn't feel so cumbersome in my hands I would be totally thrilled with it.
if you have large hands and a regular katana feels too small for your grip, then this is your sword.
An extremely nice blade but the handle is too wide for me not sure if I have small hands or if other people have had this problem. Still a nice blade though and the one I received had a nice looking finish. Good light cutter so I won't ruin my Hanwei swords :D.
Nice sword but the fit and finish work on the wood parts is somewhat sloppy looking.
