Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening. The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, and keeps its edge very well.

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).

Folded Steel: This blade had been folded fifteen times, creating 32768 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.

Katana purchase
Hi Stephen, Thanks for your feedback, and very happy you like the Katana! It's a beautiful one, that's for sure. Really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. As for the customs charges - I hear you on that. Unfortunately it's a tricky one, as it's not something we're able to control -- some packages are picked up and some aren't, and the amount can vary based on the customs' office's discretion, so if we were to charge up-front, it might inflate the order cost unnecessarily, which wouldn't really seem right. To illustrate some potential customs charges, we do try to provide some estimates on in our customs information section here: https://www.bladespro.co.uk/pages/shipping-and-returns-terms-and-conditions#customs But, I do hear you on that, and we're working on a better solution to make it clearer during the order process. So thank you for your feedback, and we'll keep working on that so that hopefully it's clearer in the future :) Have a great one! Thanks again - The BladesPro Team
