When creating this work of art the craftsman must use all of his skill and truly feel the steel to bring out its inner beauty and strength. Constructing such a blade would begin by forging and folding 1060 carbon steel together 11 times.This process is carried out until there are up to 2048 layers, creating a beautiful grain like patterns in the steel. By folding the steel in different ways, a sword making master can actually control the patterns in the steel to create different appearances.
The reason for using the fold forging method was to transform iron into high quality steel, removing the impurities and amalgamating the soft and hard characteristics of the steel. This creates a strong yet flexible blade that can withstand duress.
After being forged folded by hand, the new blade is arduously hand-polished and sharpened simultaneously with different grades of stones to bring out the beautiful patterns caused by the folding layers of steels. Plating (Electroplating) is the use of electrolytic principle in some metal surface on a thin layer of other metal or alloy plating process, is the use of electrolytic action made of metal or other materials adhered on the surface of the parts of a layer of metal film technique to prevent metal oxidation (rust), improve the wear resistance and electric conductivity, reflective resistance, corrosion resistance, copper sulfate, etc. And improve aesthetics, and so on. Katana -One of Japanese Quintessence, is the product of worldwide unique specific forging craft.
Obedience to Japanese traditional work craft, we produce katana and swords in different series, different style, and different usage. This KATANA is 100% hand-forged and hand-sharpened according to the Japanese traditional forging methods. Our differentially hardened carbon steel blades have been heat-treated, sharpened, and well-balanced. The blade is constructed from high quality carbon steel, carefully hand beaten into shape, forged, quenched before being polished by hand to a mirror sheen.
While it is common to find swords which have a rat tail tang (two pieces welded together), a thin tang or even no tang at all, all of our Japanese swords have a thick tang running from the blade to the full length of the handle. Only after we confirm, can the changes be done. International Buyers - Please Note. Please contact with us before you leave feedback.We will try our best to solve the problem for you, thank you.
