Handmade Sword

Real Handmade Swords

As far back as the Bronze Age, the skills of the swordsmiths producing handmade swords in Japan and China were legendary. The swords were forge-folded, which meant that in some cases, many weeks of labor were spent to achieve the right balance of strength and flexibility. In addition, most of the blades were differentially hardened to prevent brittleness; the spine of the sword would retain flexibility, while the cutting edge could be tempered for maximum strength.

One of the most famous handmade Japanese sword types is the katana, which is a functional samurai sword weapon of choice. Other Japanese handmade swords for sale today carry the odachi, tanto, wakazashi, tachi and musashi designations. Handmade Chinese swords generally fall into one of two classifications: Jian, which have a dual edge, or Dao, which are single-edged. However, the actual blade can have multiple sides and grooves. Should you be looking to buy a Korean sword, we have the Competition Samgakdo , Jikdo Kagum, and the Laito Laido practice sword to offer.

Shoppers looking for real handmade swords can find an excellent selection, whether they are searching for a ceremonial piece, a practice sword or a blade for use in competitions. Many of the swords are forge-folded in the traditional method and/or differentially hardened. Display stands and ornate scabbards are included with most styles, and complete sets are also available.
