More than 2,600 years ago the sword smith perfected the process to create precision hand forged swords. No edged weapon in history has ever been surrounded with such mystique and tradition like the Japanese sword created by this process. As the "Soul of the Samurai" these swords are forged in almost a religious like act to be the most prized gift a warrior could receive. Hand forged by Master Craftsmen with years of experience, the blade is formed from steel that is hammered and folded multiple times. Each forging and folding aligns the ions in the steel, creating a precision blade with a formed edge that is easy to sharpen and that can withstand the wear from battles. These master craftsmen combine modern knowledge with traditional secrets to produce superior quality swords with enhanced durability, sharpness and exquisite craftsmanship.
The blades are hammered out, folded and hammered again, up to 12 times, to produce a blade that has a Rockwell Hardness of 57 on the edge and 45 on back of the blade. Creating a blend that holds an edge, resists chips and marks but is durable, flexible and does not rebound when struck. This hand forging process is extremely labor intensive requiring long hours of effort by a skilled craftsman. The quality of these swords is phenomenal in detail but limited in supply; you will cherish these swords as other warriors have for over 25 centuries.
