The Japanese knives have inherited the traditional Japanese sword crafting techniques. The Japanese swords are known around the world for their incomparable sharpness, durability, and elegance. This exceptional quality was achieved by abundance of highly pure iron sand in the Japanese soil. Availability of high grade material promoted development of forging techniques, and exquisite Japanese sword were born.
One of the unique characteristics of the Japanese sword is the joining of soft iron with steel through the forging process.
This is done by applying heat treatment such as quenching and tempering. Completed swords present a distinct peculiarity in each section, the edge, the spine, and the fold. All the sections of blade fulfill the purpose of the sword as a single distinct weapon.
