Choice of blade
The first step is to choose the type of blade adapted to your needs, remember that in case of doubt you can of course contact us.
Our 1060 blades (0.60% carbon) are perfect if you want a collector's sword but made using processes that are as close as possible to tradition. Occasional cutting is possible, but 1095 steel is more recommended for cutting practice (more efficient cutting edge).
T10 / C105 steel
The T10 / C105 sabers (find out more) contain 1.05% carbon for the collection as well as the cut. Thanks to the hard steel that makes up their blade, we can achieve a finer wire in comparison to the 1060 blades. Superior in cut and flexibility than 1095, it can respond to intensive use.
Damascus steel (1060/1095)
Laminated blade, made of 1095 and 1060 steel. This gives a ribbed appearance and gives more flexibility. However, it will rarely be tested, so it is above all an aesthetic choice (which can also be obtained with the "folded" option, see further on in the custom section or here).
T10 / C105 Hamon steel
T10 / C105 blade with refractory clay hamon. The steel below the line (hamon) turns into martensite, it becomes extremely hard which allows to obtain an exceptional cutting edge during polishing. Not to be confused with a false hamon or an industrial hamon produced by cold air!
Damascus steel Hamon (1060/1095)
Damask blade with hamon to give the saber an exceptional edge. Beautiful ribbed appearance thanks to the damask, but hamon much less visible and less highlighted than on a 1095 or composite blade. So think about it if you want a well marked hamon, not masked by damask.
Composite steel "Honsanmaï" Hamon
A blade composed of 1095 (hard steel) at the cutting edge, hardened with Hamon, as well as a soft steel (1045) and 1060 at the heart. This results in a blade that is both very sharp and very flexible / resistant. One of the technical feats of the Japanese forge.
Composite steel "Soshue Kitae" Hamon
A blade composed of 1095 (hard steel) at the cutting edge, sides and back, hardened with Hamon, as well as a soft steel (1045) at the core and 1060 between the two layers. This results in a blade that is both very sharp and very flexible / resistant. One of the technical feats of the Japanese forge.
The tamahagane is a particular steel characteristic of the traditional Japanese forge. It can go up to 1.5% carbon (where 1095 only goes up to 0.95%) while still being flexible thanks to its other additives. More carbon therefore allows better sharpening, for a razor blade that will not become dull. Our tamahagane is produced by us outside of Japan, find out more
