SNA Sword Focus: Ryujin T10 High Carbon Steel Katana



The Ryujin T-10 High Carbon Steel KatanaSword is recognized as a first rate unsurpassed Samurai sword which encompasses unique elements that other swords do not possess. Aside from going through the ordinary process of casting, heat administration, water or oil immersion and clay molding, the main difference that distinguishes this sword from similar ones is the relevant substance that is utilized - high speed steel. This is the integral element that supersedes the traditional material that is implemented in the handmade construction of Samurai swords.

The T-10 steel Katanas are revered and preferred more than any other steel type swords. 
The special distinctions of the T-10 Katana high speed steel sword is a Chinese classification for an alloy manufactured of Carbon steel and Tungsten which incorporates elevated purport of carbon, as opposed to other alternate carbon steels, around 1% and a modicum of silicon 0.35%.

The Tungsten inherent parts create this variety of steel as being impervious to scrapes, abrasions, and even shock, and is exceedingly resilient with a high degree of reliability and tolerance capabilities. The utmost impedance and strength is achieved when accurately tempered.

The T-10 Steel Katana share the essential properties of carbon steel and spring steel Katanas, however it is the Tungsten steel component that assures the hardness and extreme resistance to excoriation and the clay annealing method and well-defined density formation achieved, following that development permits the swords of T-10 to be acknowledged and categorized as the most enduring.


Precision is necessary during the forging process which is a fragile procedure to achieve satisfactory finalized outcome. It is imperative to preheat the alloy to 1100F and steadily modify the temperature to 1500F allowing a gradual heating course for up to 30 minutes not to deplete any of the quantity of carbon and subsequently immersing in water.

The forging method is adequate at the beginning temperature of 1500F to initiate covering the blade with clay prior to burnishing with sporadic dispersion of clay stratum consistency, uniting the edge and spine which enables the edges to be solid and the spine to be pliable, intensively enhancing the sturdiness of the T10 Steel Katana sword.

The handle of the sword is enforced with an unyielding material that’s not susceptible to breakage as a result of continual and monotonous shock when in use. 

The T-10 Steel Katana sustains its razor sharp edges for a prolonged period of time even though they are prone to breakage as opposed to natural curving when it is used, additionally the correct use of these remarkable swords escalates and optimizes their endurance.

There’s no exacting preservation or special care necessary, they only have to be cleaned and polished on a regular basis and stored accordingly.
