Nakaniida-Uchihamono (Nakaniida Traditional Blade)

October 03, 2017

YNakaniida traditional blades are hammer-forged by blacksmiths one at a time. These blades are crafted using the karauchi method, a traditional forging technique that has been adopted from Japanese katana blade-making. There are no molds used; instead, iron and steel are heated in a furnace and made into shapes by hammering. It demonstrates authentic craftsmanship to create fine blades only by referencing samples of the desired shape. This involved crafting method is not suitable for mass production, so such items tend to cost relatively high. However, because this method is not limited by pre-set molds, it has the great advantage of allowing flexibly during the forging process, which makes for more diverse as well as unique products.
