    What a build! Not only did you guys made ACTUAL Tamahagane, you forged it as traditional as you can get these days. You did not disappoint. We waited, you delivered! All worth the wait. HATS OFF TO YOU! NOW THAT'S BLACKSMITHING!

      Lol of course katana can’t cut through iron since a katana was built for speed when it comes to killing. Broad swords however, were a lot heavier may not be as sharp as a katana but uses its heavy advantage to deal blunt attacks. Thus, straining the opponent. Katana’s were made for ending quick fights, broadswords were made for long straining fights.

      I appreciate the effort and I think it's educational for those who don't know about Japanese forging techniques, but I was very disappointed that they decided to quench in oil instead of water. I understand that it's an easier to control process, but it does not give you the richness of a true Japanese Hamon.

      I don't know how "respectful" it is. The forging of a katana in Japan is a spiritual and religious process and undertaking, from the production of the steel itself, to the blade, the polishing and the furniture. It takes months. To be respectful of the tradition would be not to awkwardly imitate it at all by reducing it to it a superficial process while completely missing the spiritual and cultural aspects of the process, the traditions and the lineage of the craftsmen that make a katana a katana. As Westerners do with all things, they miss the larger points to focus on the superficial in order to produce something they can jackass around with on TV. That is not respect.

      I have an actual, from-a-swordsmith katana. On receiving it, I lashed a pool noodle to an Adirondack chair out in the yard. I took a straight, baseball-bat swing at the noodle and SWISH - it zipped through that noodle lightsaber style. A section of pool noodle maybe a foot long toppled off. I set it back up there and swung at that - ZIP - it cut through that loose, weighs-nothing, 1-foot piece of noodle as neatly as if it were attached to something. This is essentially a three-foot scalpel that can be swung like a bat. Every single metal surface is a facet, like the whole thing is a jewel.

      Edit - let me also add that aside from the inner and outter core of the blade itself, already explained in this video, the Katana's curve and even the fittings were all designed to absorb impact/reduce shock to the weilder. It is also perfectly balanced.
      All these in contrast to the European swords which are heavy one pieced and top heavy.

      (don't know what a weeb is anyway so who cares) also those who know the difference about swords are those who have the time and money to care about and buy completely useless items for our day and age. although they are cool, there really is no use. It is like buying an oddly shaped kitchen knife that you can't even use in the kitchen.
      Yes i don't know about swords but who cares, i sure don't and i just gave my honest opinion because yes katana really are a masterpiece among swords

    Major respect for the amazing craftsmanship, not many can do this still. After saying that, they missed a few really important things. First it’s important to note that when heat treating and quenching, this is the moment the sword receives its soul. This is also the moment that the craftsman knows whether he will be able to continue with the piece or not as many crack during this process. And second the art of honing and polishing is one of the most important and most satisfying as you see the beauty of the blade come to life. Third they did not one single close-up of the blade once it was finished. And not one shot of the hamon which is the most awe inspiring part of any katana. I was very disappointed in the end because they didn’t show the beauty of their creation, only chopping objects like school children. I own a few beautiful swords and although I do enjoy chopping tatami mats, I appreciate them much more for their beauty. And I think after 1100 hours of hard labor they would want to show it.

      Vinh Huynh They quenched it in oil, which will give just an equally good performing blade if it's a fast enough oil such as "Parks 50" from Heatbath, which they do have and do use. They went that route because there is MUCH less chance of the blade cracking in oil, and especially after all that work, I don't blame them lol , The blade will only curve up in a water quench, which is why they pre-curved it. Yea It's not 100% traditionally made, but close enough for this show's purpose, to entertain "along with" adding a bit of education here and there. :)

    My only issue with this, was due to the small size of the bloom. It had to be quickly welded under the hammer. But what should have been done is it should have been let to cool after the walls of the forge removed. So it could then be broken and sorted into high carbon and low carbon shards which would then be stacked and welded. Giving a more controlled placement of high and low carbon steel as opposed to the relatively random placement from a bloom taken directly from forming to weld.

      A fraction of all kinetic energy is always converted into thermal energy. Thats why rubbing your hands together heats them up, or why you get rope burn.
