Tamahagane steel

Postby Geordie Ross » Wed Sep 07, 2011 11:50 am

Hi folks I found this interesting video clip on the net about tamahagane forging process and I now understand why is sooooo expensive haha if the link doesn't work search "KATANA (samurai sword)" in google vids and enjoy ;)

Nope it's a different one, I edited the link, see if that one works, the actual clip is called "KATANA (samurai sword)" it shows the traditional methods and skill of the smithy
