FAKE.....A real Katana is folded repeatedly until the blade is so hard it will cut stone. (Besides, the music sucked...)
He's not kidding. It is a very complex process that re-aligns the molecules in the steel. They rarely need sharpening with anything more than a sharpening steel and when cutting paper they make little noise. RAZOR SHARP!
@rcpilotjae maybe he already folded the steel? The Katana steel is very similar to Damascus steel by the way, from wiki: "....The reputation and history of Damascus steel have given rise to many legends, such as the ability to cut through a rifle barrel or to cut a hair falling across the blade, but no evidence exists to support such claims. A research team in Germany published a report in 2006 revealing nanowires and carbon nanotubes in a blade forged from Damascus steel. This finding was covered by National Geographic and the New York Times.Although modern steel outperforms these swor More..ds, microscopic chemical reactions in the production process may have made the blades extraordinary for their time. Woody biomass and leaves are known to have been used to carbonize the Wootz ingots used in Damascus steel, and research now shows that carbon nanotubes can be derived from plant fibers, suggesting how the nanotubes were formed in the steel. Some experts expect to discover such nanotubes in more relics as they are analyzed more closely." Less..
@rcpilotjae Agree, but the results are amazing
The first thing i would do with this beautyful katana...kill the terrible singer!
@bemac haha. Took my grandmother to a Chinese restaurant and she said "What's with the dying cow music?"
Sorry. Not a real Katana. Not even close.
Real Katana are made from Damascus steel (Japanese Variation) The steel is bent back on itself and welded together multiple times. Each time getting more layers of carbide mixed with softer steel. Starting from just one length you can get steel with hundreds to literally thousands of layers.
The katana is incredibly sharp from the carbide layers and incredibly strong from the iron layers.
@DEADBEEF For once. I agree with this aussie. Oh god...think I just threw up alittle....
Don't worry. Just think of yourself as one of the millions of monkeys on millions of typewriters who after a millions of years accidentally reproduce the works of Shakespeare.
@DEADBEEF Can it be milton? Shakespeate was hack.
@elmerfudd13 Shakespeare was a hack? Good lord...
@ST0N3PONY He was. 8)
All show no go. I see no folded steel core.
But.. That was a single slab. Aren't real Katanas made from metal sheets folded repeatedly? That thing would crack on impact
@Arn_Thor I was about to say the same.
Anyone else think the music beats Country & Western?
There's supposed to be a dozen or more folds when red hot steel to create over 1000 layers in the blade. This is not the original way of making a katana.
Pretty cool...music was painfully shite tho!
Not the way to do it! The metal bar has to be folded many times to achieve the necessary strength. The blade is then roughly sharpened and coated with clay. the clay is removed from the blade-edge to enable further hardening. It's then heated and cool-bathed to give the sword a genuine pattern. Looks like this knob is more interested in making the scabbard. Sheesh.
I thought so too .. maybe was some cheap katana for salt to foreigner noobs, defenitely not the real thing.
Either a lot of steps were skipped in the filming, or this is a cheap katana.
THIS is art. Not some million dollar LSD-influenced crap hanging in many museum nowadays.
This makes Hattori Hanzo look like an amateur.
Step one, draw a couple vagina's on paper.
change the title, he didn't make a katana...but you still gotta give him credit for being able to make a badass regular sword..
@utginoxd3 exactly, thank you
not half as sharp, as the average liveleak commenter.
@midnightfapper Right, many comments cut deep to the bone!
Oh. It's a sword. I was expecting to see a Suzuki factory making a motor bike.
@DirtyUncleBerty ancient chinese secret:glue
If i understand it right you dont have to fold anything as long you use the right steel to start with, why old Japanese swordmaker foldet the steel 7-16(depending on steel) was to get impurities out of the steel. In other words... they have really shitty steel in Japan.
Then again combine a softer steel between two harder cant go wrong, will not brittle and still have very hard steel for cutting edge.
Nowdays all swords are showpieces so theres no real reson to make it for swordf More..ighting, wors case scenario you have to use it to fend of home invaders and im sure this sword will work just fine. Less..
@Kallekofot That doesn't have anything to do with getting impurities out of the steel. By smashing and heating the metal you change its physics properties increasing the plastic and elastic deformation ratio. You study this at Continuum mechanics and it is much more complex then you can imagine. BTW, I dont know how i can get more purity by smashing something? PS: I dont know shit about katanas, but I know a bit of physics.
Will quote Wiki..
The authentic Japanese sword is made from a specialized Japanese steel called "Tamahagane" which consist of combinations of hard, high carbon steel and tough, low carbon steel. There are benefits and limitations to each type of steel. High-carbon steel is harder and able to hold a sharper edge than low-carbon steel but it is more brittle and may break in combat. Having a small amount of carbon will allow the steel to be more malleable, maki More..ng it able to absorb impacts without breaking but becoming blunt in the process. The makers of a katana take advantage of the best attributes of both kinds of steel. The maker begins by folding and welding pieces of high and low carbon steel several times to work out most of the impurities.
I remember everything i read and i knew i read it somewhere. Less..
there is something seriously mesmerizing about owning a trade.
Not as good as my Hattori Hanzo sword.
I find this not easy to masturbate to. The bitch wont stfu.
awesome music. i pumped the volume up, so my neighbors could here it too
Came for the video, stayed for the music
From someone who knows, this is a low/mid grade katana. It IS a katana regardless of what others say because it looks like it meets size dimensions. It is NOT (as others have stated) a high grade katana folded over and over. These are very rare in Japan anyway because you have to have a license in Japan to own a sword.
I'm also curious why Okinawan-sounding music was used when Japanese swords mostly come from western Tohoku (Ishikawa Prefecture being the most famous).
@s7rugg1e Because it was made by a Mexican
@900cc Yeah, and I'll admit that he did quite a job at it too. I think that a lot of Japanese swordmakers would be impressed at his end result just from hammering. The tang, handle, and guard all look very close to Japanese standards. I'm in line to inherit about 10 swords of different sizes (split half with my brother in law) and 4 of them have names.
how old are the swords that you are inheriting?
@900cc A Mexican`s radio stuck on the Ramen channel
