Swordsmiths are notoriously known to be difficult with the types of steel they work with, so the block of steel has to pass a thorough inspection before making it to their own workspace. Therefore, the few smiths who are using the traditional techniques in Japan and are willing to sell their swords do so for a really high price – usually upward of 5000$. Needless to say, these swords are inaccessible to most people. Only select steel blocks make it through, while smaller, impure steel is sent to make forks and small knives.
However, this process also makes for a better blade, as high-carbon steel becomes stronger with each folding round, compressing itself to strength. The “Damascus” pattern is done by elonating a steel bar for a first time, then “folding” the blade on top of itself until it becomes a steel bar again, then elongating it again a second time. This is one folding round. At Swords for Sale, our forgers fold and re-elongate all our Folded High-Carbon blades 13 times. Because of this time-consuming process, folded blades usually cost more than simple, high-carbon steel blades.
The type of steel normally used for modern swords is usually High-Carbon steel. High-Carbon steel, on the other hand, is perfect for functional, battle-ready swords.

In ancient Japan, katanas were very rare and valuable. They were made with special techniques and metals – more specifically one – Tamahagane steel (also called Jewel Steel). This is a special type of steel issued from iron sand smelted in the traditional Japanese low furnace. Tamahagane steel swordsmithing is not completely extinct nowadays, but nearly. This is simply because the traditional methods of smelting, forging, and refining a blade is extremely expensive. Moreover, the special ore (Tamagahane) required for the traditional process is very rare – and thus expensive. Moreover, swords are actually illegal in Japan, so it’s very hard to get any of these so-prized pieces of art out of the country. See even more details at https://swordsfor.sale/.
