I wonder if it was using depleted uranium rounds. If so they r crazy hard/dense. The sword held up for 7 rounds....not bad.

That is VERY impressive.

The Sword stood up to several bullets.

Talk about craftsmanship.

I wonder how they make them? I heard it was folded, but I don't really know the details.

7 rounds in almost the exact same spot.

It could hold probably 40 shots if you didnt actually hit the exact same spot everytime.

Impressive

Yeah that's correct. They keep hardening the iron several times... I forget the name of the process though.

They typical samurai sword (not the ones you buy at disney world or the asian shop) are folded a thousand times over. They use clay as well for the cooling process. Clay helps the cooling slow so the back of the sword is less rigid while the edge of the blade is hard to help keep the edge. These kinds of swords you can't just buy in the mall. They take at least a month to make. I was actually considering getting one. they are 7-10 grand an aprentice or master will make it for you custom. Though I would really love a cherry blossom vitory sword from wwII officers.

Material Iron

Japanese sword is made of mainly two different irons, called "Tamahagane" and "Hochotetsu". Tamahagane is the hardest and rare iron, and the second hardest is Hochotetsu, which is generally used for a kitchen knife. .They are extracted from iron sand from mountains with the special equipment called "Tatara" with low heat and long time. After that process, you can have only a small amount of Tamahagane, so Tamahagane is very expensive. Tamahagane is so rare and expensive that it is normally added by "Oroshigane"--- a mixture of some different hardness irons like Hochotetsu --- to make a katana.

Structure of Katana

Japanese katana is made of two different hardness irons, the outside is the hardest iron containing Tamahagane, which is called "Hitetsu", and the inside is called "Shintetsu" used less hard iron. And using two different irons, soft inside and hard outside, makes Japanese swords "hard but unbreakable".

Process for making Katana

Heat the Tamahagane and Oroshigane with very hot fire to forge it. Strike and stretch it with a hammer and fold it into two. It requires high technique because when you fold the iron, you must not put air in between. Continue those works many times to make the iron harder and purer. When you fold the iron ten times, the layers will be 1024. Then, forge the iron for Shintetsu by the same process as the Tamahagane. Attach the Shintetsu and the Hitetsu. And strike it with a hammer to make the shape of Katana. Put "Hamon" on the Katana with a spatula. Heat the Katana with very hot fire. Cool the Katana by putting it into cold water. Sharpen the Katana. This work is called "Togi", and done by the specialist of Togi. It takes one month. At this stage, the katana becomes very sharp. To make 100% real Japanese sword very sharp and strong, it has to go through all this process

Only if they made pistons like that..."Hanzo pistons" i'd be able to boost 30 psi on 87 octane all day

I've always wanted a real sword but could never afford it.
