More than 2,600 years ago the Chinese city of Longquan was know as the "City of Treasure Swords" for their precision hand forged swords. No edged weapon in history has ever been surrounded with such mystique and tradition like the Japanese sword. As the "Soul of the Samurai" this sword is forged in almost a religious like act to be the most prized gift a warrior could receive. Ryumon and Masahiro swords are hand forged by master craftsmen with years of experience from Longquan. These master sword smiths combine modern knowledge with traditional secrets to produce superior quality swords with enhanced durability, sharpness and exquisite craftsmanship.
The blades are hammered out and 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.
