Product Description

ZUBENG FORGE

 Zubeng Forge is a Smithy in the heart of China, Master Rich Chen uses an Ancient formula to create true Tamahagane steel for his swords and knives.  Making Tamahagane steel is a long and labor intensive process which starts with select Iron Sand and other Natural materials that are found in only a few places in the world.

Here is a video of Master Chen making Tamahagane for his Sword

                 

  Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Master Rich Chen of Zubeng Forge


 Just Received ~ Direct from the Maker

Exclusively at Fort Henry Custom Knives 

Master Chen brought me a piece of the actual Tamahagane Steel he makes ~ this slab is as it appears “In Process” 

 This is a Convex sharpened Bevel hunting knife, hand crafted from the same hand made Tamahagane steel as Ancient Chinese swords.  

Differential Heat Treat leaves an intricate flowing Hamon which defines the hardness zones of the blade from the Softer spine and is clearly visible in all true Tamahagane pieces. 

The Stabilized Curly Maple handle scales have beautiful coloring and wonderful Chatoyance when rotated back and forth in the light. It is thick and nicely contoured with a Forward Finger placement area on each side of the handle, the Red Liners and Mosaic pins certainly add more eye appeal.  The scales on this one have shrank just a tiny bit. 

This knife blade has the same shape as traditional Chinese Swords, the Convex edge is amazingly sharp – it provides both strength and precision cutting ability and only Stropping is recommended to maintain the edge.  

  This knife comes complete with a thick Custom leather belt sheath that can be work Vertically on the RH side.

Or also worn Horizontally on as a Cross Draw.  

A beautiful hand made blade with the Sweat and Soul of the Maker in the Steel. 

97

Complete with a Care Certificate from Master Chen.

Brand New from the Maker.  The handle scales have shrank ever so slightly, just a tiny bit so that you can feel the tang with your fingertips.
