Modern vacuum heat treatment can meet the hardness requirements of most swords, but the traditional quenching method has better effect, can soften the medium strip steel, and the hardness is higher.Dao : Dao are single-edged Chinese swords, primarily used for slashing and chopping. The most common form is also known as the Chinese sabre, although those with wider blades are sometimes referred to as Chinese broadswords. During the Tang Dynasty, dao were exported to both Korea and Japan, influencing the swordsmithing of both nations. The blades of Tang era dao are reminiscent of the Japanese chokuto. As in the preceding dynasties, Tang dynasty dao were straight along the entire length of the blade. Single-handed peidao ("belt dao") were the most common sidearm in the Tang dynasty. These were also known as hengdao ("horizontal dao" or "cross dao") in the preceding Sui dynasty. Two-handed changdao ("long dao") or modao were also used in the Tang, with some units specializing in their use.

After the blade has been shaped, the sword would be quenched. We quench our swords in either water or oil. Water quenching produces a tougher edge which can also be hardened further more using clay. Blades quenched in oil are still considerably hardened and do have superior flexibility compared to a water quenched blade.Folded Steel :
In the forging process , the most useful process is the folding, where the metals are forge welded, folded, and welded again, as many as 16 times. The folding removes impurities and helps even out the carbon content, while the alternating layers combine hardness with ductility to greatly enhance the toughness. The less impurities, the harder and sharper the blade will be. We have done cutting tests on the blades. it can cut bamboo(young bamboo tree), grass mattings and slice paper(The blade should be tilted at 45 degrees).Clay tempered :
To maximize both the cutting edge and the resilience of the sword spine, a technique of differential heat-treatment is used. The sword is painted with layers of clay before heating, providing a thin layer or none at all on the edge of the sword, ensuring quick cooling to maximize the hardening for the edge. A thicker layer of clay is applied to the rest of the blade, causing slower cooling. This creates softer, more resilient steel, allowing the blade to absorb shock without breaking.
About 1095 carbon steel :The best quality of high carbon steel is at 1095, the carbon content was 1.03%, and the element contains a small amount of chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, after heat treatment can reach HRc58-60 hardness, toughness is very good, but not resistant to rust, more be applied to traditional european-style hunting knife, large cutting knife and military dao. Such as the United States during world war ii "KA - BAR" saber is in 1095 as the blade material.Kobuse :
The vast majority of modern katana and wakizashi are the maru type which is the most basic, with the entire sword being composed of a single steel. The kobuse type is made using two steels, which are called hagane (edge steel) and shingane (core steel). Steel of different materials is forged and welded together to hammer the basic shape of the sword. This allows the overall blade to have a higher toughness and absorb a lot of impact. Reducing the possibility of breaking or bending to some extent. Makes the blade not only has high hardness, but also has super toughnessDelivery details a) Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.These charges are the buyer’s responsibility.b)Only paypal accepted.
