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).

Suna 砂 Clay Tempered Folded Steel Katana

Delivery was fast and only took 12 days from the date of purchase to being delivered at my door. Item overall quality left me speechless and almost completely satisfied. Unfortunately the beautiful blade fold marks featured in the stock photos are barely visible after the standard manufacturing polish process, but they're still somewhat visible under medium dim light. A small sacrifice in order to give the steel better protection against rust while giving the blade a glossy and shiny finish at the same time.

Custom engraved laser fonts look smooth, but hand carving would've been a lot more appreciated. FYI engraving only shows on one side. Double Bo-hi looks amazing on the blade and helps distinguish this mid-tier katana from the cheaper replicas. The color scheme and design both make this sword a collector's must have. The katana's overall quality is very high for its price of just under USD $400. This is a true bargain in my honest opinion, and feels just one step below a $$$$ Elite Katana.

First Impression, sturdy and smooth to the touch thanks to its quality leather ito wrap. It also features a near perfect center of gravity. Along with its 60HRC steel, all materials used feel expensive and tightly precise, even alloy components feel like pure cast iron. The sheath feels sturdy and pleasant to the touch and works in perfect harmony with the blade, specially during the drawing and sheathing of the blade. With the right amount of care and discipline this katana will last you a lifetime.

Hi Felix,
Thank so much for taking the time to do such a great and detailed review and the unboxing video is great! We take your feedback on board and look into having an option for engraving to be laser or handmade, so people can choose their preference. We are super happy to hear that you liked the sword, we hope you enjoy it for many years!
Thanks - The American BladesPro Team

How is your sword made?

Sword Crafting In 3 Simple Steps

All our swords are hand-crafted using traditional forging methods that have been in place for thousands of years.

Click the tabs above to see exactly how we'll make your sword - from Design, to Forging, to Finishing.

1. Design

Designed by experts.

First, your sword is designed by experts who've crafted thousands of swords. Our product team carefully plans the combination of aesthetics and features that will make up the sword:

Aesthetics: Shape, design, colours, ornaments and decorations, and fittings to determine the look and style of the final piece.

Features: Practicalities such as blade length, blade width, steel type, handle and scabbard dimensions, as well as weight and whether or not the sword will include a Bo-Hi.

2. Forging

Forged by Craftsmen... by hand.

For the inner core of the blade, impurities are removed and steel created via the smelting process. The carbon level is varied (higher or lower) to get a result of softer or harder steel. The brick-sized piece of prepared steel is then forged until soft, and hammered until elongated. It's then folded over and over until all impurities are removed and the desired shape is achieved.

For the outer part of the blade, the heat/pound/fold technique is applied up to 3,000 times to create a strong blade, which is then painted with a clay and charcoal mixture and thrust into water to finalise.

3. Finishing

Finishing touches.

The blade is then polished and a handle attached. From there, the sword is adorned with desired fittings and ornaments, engraved (if desired) and lacquer is applied to the wooden scabbard to create a beautiful, functional piece. It's then carefully packed and shipped out using our courier service, arriving at your door safe and sound.
