Forging a Trench KATANA out of Rusted Iron CHAIN

4 Просмотры
This time, I tried to make a beautiful Trench Katana. I have given an antique look to this Katana by bluing technique.

Overall Sword Length : 32 Inches
Handle Length : 6 Inches
Blade Length : 26 Inches
Weight : KG or 1379 Grams

All the Processes are below of making this beautiful KATANA:

It took me about three days to hand forge an Iron Chain piece into a long Metal Strip and this was one of my hardest forging ever. I don't have a power hammer so i did all the forging with hands and turned a chain piece into an almost 32 - 33 inches long steel strip.

I started some rough grindings of long strip on my professional Surface Grinder and turned the strip into a flat Katana shaped long steel piece. I also hand sanded the edges with the help of file to remove almost all the roughness of the sword.
o. The blade bevel was made by my professional angle grinder.
o. Hand Sanded the blade to remove roughness.

Making the Fire Clay:
I took 2% CLAY, 2% COAL and 1% Rust. All the ingredients were mixed in a particular amount of water and I putted the thick layer of this fire clay on my sword and let the blade dry for a night.

There is a professional way to harden a Katana and that is
Covering the whole sword in a Fire Clay (Insulation) Except the blade that we put the sword into the fire and heat it to critical temperature. We use oil to Quench the heated sword in it. Now the Bevel is hard and the remaining sword is annealed. Tempering the blade is the best way to increase the Strength, Hardness and Toughness of the sword.

Trench Handle:
I used Wax casting technique for making the Handle. First i roughly made a Wax Design of the Trench Handle and poured the casting plaster on it and burned all the wax inside the plaster in my furnace. Then I casted the Brass in Mold and made a beautiful Handle for my Katana.

Bluing Technique:
There are bunch of bluing techniques but i love the Cold bluing technique the most because it saves a lot of my time and gives a beautiful finish. The blade and Handle was blued in the same way and the beautiful outcome you can see in the video.
