The Custom katana (Honsanmai Folded) is our most advanced custom katana. It features a high quality blade that is handforged in folded high carbon steel. Is has been differentially tempered using clay to create a beautiful authentic hamon (temperline). This means that we have created an edge that is very hard and a back of the blade that is softer. With this ancient technique, we make sure our BushiSwords are hard enough to face the target when cutting, but also flexible enough to handle the impact. This is what makes a Japanese sword so unique. But with this Samurai sword we go even further. We use different types of steel in a honsanmai lamination to make the strength of this katana even better.
We have lots of options, so it might be challenging to design your one of a kind katana. If you need advice or have any questions about what we can do for you, just ask. We can even make a design for your Samurai Sword based on your preferences. Contact us here.
