The Katana 328 Samurai Sword by Marto of Toledo Spain is laboriously crafted, with attention paid to every detail.
The authentic-looking hamon on the blade is artificial (not made by differential clay hardening). It is ground by a special device. The blade is made of stainless Steel X30Cr13, hardened to 48-52 Rockwell.
This is just a decorative item, not suitable for combat or any other practical use!
Premium quality made in Spain by Marto.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
