Each sword blade is hand forged out of 1050 High Carbon spring steel and individually heat treated, tempered and polished by skilled hands. Please don't mistake these swords for those "just for show" decorative swords. These ARE the genuine article; real, battle-ready weapons that you can bet your life on.

The Hanwei Forge's blades are forged and differentially tempered, using the traditional Japanese methods, thus producing an HRC60 edge and HRC40 back (HRC is Rockwell Hardness). Many of these feature temper lines (hamon) which is both authentic and prominent. This type of tempering makes a blade that is very hard and a back which is tough spring steel. Hanwei also offers swords forged using the traditional folded metal forging process.
