Product Description

DESCRIPTION:

"The pinnacle of Dynasty Forge's capabilities, this classic Samurai Wakizashi (companion sword) is made completely in the historical method. Starting with small batch low-temperature smelted steel made from iron sand, our smiths pick individual pieces to balance the carbon content of the blade. The blade is then forged and folded to remove impurities from the Tamahagane, Clay-tempered and then hand polished over 40 hours on Japanese natural stones, the polish allows the wielder to see deeply into the Hada and Hamon. Matched with darkened silver Buddhist prayer wheel fittings and Japanese silk Ito, this sword is the centerpiece of any collection. Pairs perfectly with our Daimyo Tamahagane Katana to complete a Daisho.

 

Dynasty Forge was the first to offer small-batch production swords made in this manner, and remains the leader in craftsmanship and authenticity."

    The Art of Japanese Style Sword Making

    The forging of a Japanese sword is a subtle and careful process, an art that has developed over the centuries as much in response to stylistic and aesthetic considerations as to technical improvements.


    Each blade typically took many days or weeks and was considered a sacred art, traditionally accompanied by a large panoply of Shinto religious rituals. As with many complex endeavors, rather than a single craftsman, several artists were involved. There was a smith to forge the rough shape, often a second smith (apprentice) to fold the metal, a specialist polisher, and even a specialist for the edge itself. Often, there were a sheath, hilt, and tsuba specialists as well.


    Blades were often forged with different profiles, different blade thicknesses, and varying amounts of grind. Wakizashi and Tant were not simply a scaled-down katana; they were often forged without a ridge (hira-zukuri) or other such forms which were found on the katana.


    Today, swords are still being made by modern artisans; some pursue the traditional methods while others apply modern tools, techniques, and materials to the craft. A great number of commercially available swords are being made in China with modern tools and materials employing traditional methods. Let's remember that steel-making was imported into Japan from China, via Korea. The steel used in the Chinese swords, called "chi-kang" (combined steel), was similar to pattern welding, and edges of it were often forge-welded to a back of the soft iron, or "jou thieh." In trying to copy the Chinese method, the ancient Japanese smiths paid much attention to the various properties of steel and worked to combine them to produce an internal macro-structure that would provide a similar combination of hardness and toughness.
