Spring Steel Katana
Katanas, particular Japanese swords commonly known to be Samurai weapons, are different from Tachi by their light curve and their long handle that allows the weapon to be grabbed by the two hands. These Samurai Swords are made of different materials, basically Iron. Actually, Iron is not used as it is because it is soft and very flexible, susceptible to oxidation and has no particular strength. Japanese Sword maker have developed through ages many ways and means to overcome the Weak Iron properties and keep the material properties of being responsive to heat treatment and susceptible for forging.
Among the steel material used in the industrial field and metallurgy manufactories, the Spring Steel is a very god candidate for making Samurai Sword. Because it is a new alloy of Carbon steel, some metals (Magnesium or Chromium) and a certain fraction of minerals. It appears that it is a cherished material for making Swords because it has, in its several types, some particular properties. Certainly, there are steps to respect while preparing the material and while forging the Katana. What are the characteristics of Spring Steel Katanas and what are the advantages of using the Spring Steel in making Samurai Swords?
Spring Steel Material
Spring Steel is used in springs manufactures. It is generally High Carbon, or medium Carbon Steel or even Low alloy Steel. Object made of this material are able to recover their initial shapes or forms after deformation and deflections due to their very high yield strength. Spring Steel is usually obtained by adding silicon fraction to carbon steel or high carbon steel.
Notably, there are two categories of spring steel that are commonly used for making swords, the 5160 and 9260. They are alloys which are said to be resistant to extreme bending and they are able to recover their initial shape even after an advanced lateral bending session. They are characterized by a very important durability and they are easy to handle and maintain. With those noble properties, it is normal that those spring steel’s types are very expensive. The use of those materials in making Spring Steel Katanas can be a delicate operation.

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

“I decided to get a katana because I am a big fan of Japanese history and the movies, and games related to that really fascinate me. I also wanted have the design of my house renovated to turn it into an ancient Japanese-themed one, so I thought of collecting swords to display it in my home. 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
I ordered one and expected that the sword would be ok and nothing compared to original, but when I received my package and saw the weapon itself, I was surprised to see an amazing katana which had the feel of a real samurai sword. Anyone would expect that these types of items bought online would be made in a mediocre way but not here because they only give you the finest quality katana’s anyone could ask for. After this, I’m sure to order more swords from you guys, great job!”Matthew
