What is the difference between normal and forged sword blade?
The 54SiCr6 spring steel from which the sword blades are produced, have a high fatigue resistance. The chromium and silicon alloyed steel has high stability, hardness and abrasion resistance. A mold is filled with a prescribed composition of metals and these are then melted into an ingot in the steelworks. It is then rolled out to the required steel thickness. During hot rolling, the material becomes compact or denser (the crystalline structure is homogenized).
