Blood groove katana
Katana with blood groove
Forged from tamahagane steel, this katana has a Bohi (blood groove). Beyond the aesthetics of the bohi, this groove allows the katana to be lighter by removing the unnecessary excess steel. The blade of the blood groove katana is tempered thanks to the traditional clay coating technique, leaving martensite crystals and the Hamon.

How the Blood groove katana is forged
This iconic Japanese sword is traditionally forged using a meticulous and time-intensive process. The blade is typically made from a combination of iron sands and charcoal that has been smelted in a traditional furnace. The steel is then repeatedly heated, folded, and hammered to remove impurities and create a strong, durable blade with a sharp edge.
The resulting sword is not only a functional weapon, but also a work of art that embodies the rich cultural history of Japan.
