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 eleven times, creating 2048 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.

Made in China

Please be aware that although implication on website are blades produced in UK actually made in China. Had an unexpected extra charge for customs and VAT before delivery. Blade was oil covered and wrapped but still exhibited signs of rust on cutting edge. Not sure about value for money!

Hi Michael, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate it! I've emailed you privately to see if we can help with the notes you mentioned about your sword. Just to clarify on the delivery and shipping - we do try to make this clear on our site. On our About Us, Shipping, Terms And Conditions and FAQ pages, we do note up-front that, as a company we are based in the UK, but many of the world's best sword forges are based in Asia, where they've been manufacturing quality swords for hundreds of years, so many of our products (as you've experienced) do come from overseas into the UK. Shipping timeframes and customs information (including the process and cost estimates) is on our shipping page, every product page, About Us page, FAQ page, two email confirmations, and shipping confirmations. Lastly, we also present the terms and conditions, and customs information, during checkout to try and make it clear. Before ordering, there is a (required) checkbox in the checkout accepting customs charges and our terms and conditions. That said, we're always looking to improve so will take this on board to see how we can make it clearer in the future. We hope you enjoy your sword and thanks again for ordering with us, and for leaving us your feedback. - The BladesPro Team.
