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 the EXCLUSIVE ONLINE DEALER for Master Rich Chen of Zubeng Forge


  ~ Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2015 ~ 

Exclusively at Fort Henry Custom Knives 

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

 This is a Traditional Tool called a Kiri dashi – which literally translated means “to carve out”.  Very popular with Wood Carvers, Bonsai Tree artists and general home use.

These are Hand crafted from the same hand made Tamahagane steel as Master Chen uses to create his Custom Chinese swords.

Differential Heat Treat leaves the Edge hard and sharp (approx 62 Rc) – the cutting edge 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.
