The Japanese swords are custom made and hand forged in the a traditional Japanese charcoal forge from 1084 or 1086 M carbon steel. The blades are also heat treated in the traditional way with full temper lines (Hamon)

Once the blades are forged they are normalized then the out line shape is scraped in the traditional way using a Sin (draw knife)

next filled ,then the blade is clay coated and heated in the forge to the correct temperature and then cooled for hardening ,then drawn to take out some of the hardness (tempered).

The blades then are ground, sharpened and tested to cut ( all blades made in the Japanese style are made to cut )

Then the blades are finished polished and fitted with the copper collar (Habaki)

I can custom make all the fittings or purchase them from a supplier. This includes the guard, collars, caps and lace in silk or cotton.

I also make the Naganata and yari blades. Your style or mine.
