Folded Steel Sanmai Katana with Hualee Wood Saya
This is a highly recommended sword with a very
strong sanmai blade structure. It is forged with two
different materials, 1095 high carbon steel and folded
steel. The 1095 steel makes up the core while the
outside is folded steel. After the sharpening work the
1095 is exposed to work as the cutting edge. The
outside folded steel layer is folded 14 times before it is
forged together with 1095 carbon steel. This is the
traditional way of making a blade. The sword comes
with a hualee wood saya with buffalo horn koiguchi, silk
sageo/ito, premium iron fittings, and genuine rayskin. It
is suitable for dojo and iaido use, gifts, cutting practice,
and display. For those who want an extremely durable
sword, this is a very good choice. It is strong enough for cutting tameshigiri, bamboo,
bones, iron wire, and so on.

Hand Forged Tang Dao 1060 High Carbon Steel Straight Blade Ninja Samurai
During the Tang Dynasty (618-907) the
single-edged Dao was a popular weapon,
having superceded the Jian for military
preeminence centuries earlier. Notice how
the blade bears a resemblance to the
katana? During the Tang Dynasty, many
Chinese and Korean smiths emigrated to
Japan where their metallurgical skills
were in demand. From these Tang smiths
swordmaking techniques of folded steel
and the use of clay for differential
hardening. Even as late as the 12th
century, many Japanese smiths were
claiming fabled Chinese smith Ganjiang as
the original patron of their skills. After the Japanese mastered the skills of sword -making to
new heights, Japanese blades became collectors items by the Chinese Song Dynasty nobles.
Each Tang Dao is forged by our master smith
in Longquan, a region that was central to
sword production in the Song Dynasty. The
blade is made of 1060 high carbon steel. Our
steel blades have been designed from the
ground up, to offer perfect balance for regular
Iaido & Kenjutsu use. The sword comes
equipped with a black matte hardwood saya,
silk sageo/ito, alloy fittings, genuine same'
(rayskin) and silk wrapped tsuka (handle).
The Tang Dao is well assembled and the ito
wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is
individually handmade so specifications may
vary slightly from sword to sword.
