Making Black Blade Katana:

  • Traditional method: Japanese Sword making has developed some process based on Heat treatment which will induce the Katana’s Blade to turn black. Some other genius methods were developed but the traditional one is the most trusted. The process consists in leaving the forge scale on after heat treatment. The forge scale will form layers. With repetitive heat treatment the forge scale layers will mix with the Steel. Polishing the blade will bring the blade acquires the dark appearance. There is another process that can create the Black colored coat on the blade: it is heat treating the blade carelessly of the oil film that the blade will retrieve during the quenching operation. The processes are to be done with precaution and at very particular temperatures. These operations are suitable for Steel that stands high temperatures and are resistant to heat treatment, notably Spring Steels and High Carbon Steel. s obtained this way have a slight tendency to show a red dark black blade to black color.
  • Industrial method: This method consists in coating the blade with Titanium; this operation does not give the blade the stainless properties but it gives it a very beautiful black color that will glow when exposed to light. The process is known by “Titanium adsorption”. The treatment with Titanium is to be done on polished and sharpened blade, because of the susceptibility of the Titanium coat to corrosion. It is important to notice that Titanium Coating is heat sensitive; the steel types which allow the application of the titanium coat are perhaps all the steel types used in Sword making. Though it is not a suitable material for making swords, Titanium is employed to enhance the resistance to corrosion and to give the blade the legendry attributes of a legendary black blade katana but in real world.
