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.

Apasra Clay Tempered Folded Steel Katana Samurai Sword

I have been studying jujitsu for 5 years and have been using a Bokken in training. I looked at hundreds of website's, that was until I found Blades pro UK.
I spent hours looking at all the different types of katanas, then I saw the Apasra Clay Tempered Folded Steel Katana Samurai Sword. I completely fell in love with it. I purchased it on boxing day and for free I had my name in Japanese engraved on the blade.
Once it was delivered and I had it in my hands I couldn't believe how beautiful it is.
It is just perfect, I have used it in training and even my sensei is very impressed with the katana.
I cannot thank you enough.

Hi Aaron, Thank you so much for your feedback, we re so pleased to hear that you are loving your sword! Happy training! Thanks - The BladesPro Team
