Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening, Shitaji togi & Shiage togi. The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, and keeps its edge very well.

Folded Steel: This blade had been folded eleven times, creating 2048 layers. This traditional sword forging method involves repeatedly heating, hammering and folding the swords steel. The effect of this work evens out and homogenises the carbon content, making for a stronger, more flexible blade.

Clay Tempered: The blade has been clay tempered in order to harden the cutting edge while still allowing the spine to remain flexible. The tempering process imbues the blade with a distinctive Hamon (blade pattern).

Love it

The Amakusa sword is stunning. Really nice genuine hamon, beautiful folds and well balanced. The tsuka ito is high quality leather and is very tight. I had no additional customs charges and will definitely be ordering from Bladespro again.
