Get a hold of Samurai's soul forged in Japan

Out of all the weapon invented by a human, a very few evolved to be more than just a weapon - a symbol of the way of warrior life, honor and code he/she lives up to. Japanese sword, Katana is inseparable from Samurai's life, from birth to till death; For every important moment in Samurai life, there is always a sword beside them.

The exceptional quality of work by swordsmiths and sword makers made Japanese sword an art to be admired and prized. Incomparable sharpness and durability of the blade come from combining up to 4 different kinds of steel into one in forging process. Soft, flexible iron protects the hard yet brittle steel with razor sharp edge from breaking. This forging process of combining different steels creates a beautiful pattern on the blade; a Hamon.

Samurai warrior and war lords sought for better quality for their battle; sharper, durable swords were demanded. In result, renowned swordsmiths of the golden age of Samurai, through Sengoku period to Edo period, were valued and regarded very highly as likes of European artists; Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphael or Michelangelo.
