5160 Spring Steel Katana
Sabres de Samouraï are made of particular mixture of Iron, Carbon and some others added elements that will complete the alloy and give the final properties to the material used to by the sword smith. Each material has its particularities and the swords characteristics, which are mostly acquired during the forging processes, are ruled by these particularities. Actually, the desired sword type is in great part determined by the Steel material to use. Besides the price, the pieces to mount, the Hamon type, the tang category and so much properties that the sword will carry depend on the Steel Type to forge. The Steel type itself can be determined up on the intended use of the Katana and the demander budget. 5160 Spring Steel Katanas are not exceptions: they inherit several properties from the 5160 Spring Steel from which they are made of and they acquire some other characteristics during the forging process and the finalizing operations.
5160 Spring Steel
5160 Spring Steel contains basically %0.6 of Carbon; that gives it the major characteristics of Acier Carbone 1060. It is an alloy of Chromium with a small percentage of Silicon. Actually, Chromium is present at %0.7 and Silicon at %0.2. The Chromium percentage is not enough to make the Spring Steel stainless, but it is enough to make the 5160 more resistant and more durable than the 1060 Carbon steel.
This Spring Steel type is very tough and commonly used to make very solid parts of machinery. It is characterized by a very high tensile strength. 5160 Spring Steel has the property of keeping the edge’s shapes as they are for long time even if they are exposed to great corrosive and abrasive efforts. The Carbon tenor within this Chromium alloy should make the heat treatment a delicate process. Actually, heat treatment does not influence so much the chemical composition but it influences and modifies the physical properties. Thus, the final properties acquired by the 5160 Spring Steel are function of the applied heat treatment. This Heat treatment resistance is the result of the several elements that form the alloy.

“I love how the quality of their swords came out because no one will expect that an online shop like this can be able to pull off making a customized sword that is completely precise and exquisite. The materials used were beautiful, and every part of the sword had certain intricate designs which I could not ignore. Not only did they provide me with the best items but their contact service was great too. They were readily available and did not make you wait for a lengthy period which is very nice since they were an engaging crew. Also, they were really dedicated to their jobs because they provided information for most things; good communication and very pleasant!”Kirk Edwards

Absolument recommandé !!! J'ai déjà commandé 3 épées et à chaque fois, c'était bien meilleur que ce que je pouvais imaginer dans mon esprit ! Merci beaucoup pour votre service professionnel et l'attention portée aux détails.Steven
«J'ai décidé d'acheter un katana parce que je suis un grand fan de l'histoire japonaise et du cinéma, et les jeux en rapport avec ça me passionnent vraiment. Je voulais aussi que le design de ma maison soit rénové pour décorer au thème du Japon ancien, alors j'ai pensé à collecter des Sabres Japonais pour les exposer chez moi. So when I got my own katana, I was really surprised to get a great-looking sword! It was perfect for the Japanese design of my house! The quality of the craftsmanship is wonderful. I will definitely have another sword customized again for my collection.”Sebastian
J'en ai commandé un et je ne m'attendais pas à ce que le sabre soit parfait et que rien ne soit comparable à un original, mais lorsque j'ai reçu mon colis et vu l'arme elle-même, j'ai été surpris de voir un incroyable katana qui ressemblait à un véritable sabre de samouraï. Tout le monde s’attendrait à ce que ces types d’articles achetés en ligne soient fabriqués de façon médiocre, mais pas ici, car ils ne vous donneront que la meilleure qualité de katana que quiconque puisse demander. Après cela, je suis sûr de commander plus de sabre avec vous, excellent travail! "Matthew
