Plan description

You will spend a day making a small sword (small) that comes with a Japanese sword. The material is the same as the Japanese sword, and the world's finest iron (tamahagane) is forged, and a sword with a blade length of less than 15 cm is made in almost the same process as the Japanese sword. You can put the blade pattern on the soil by yourself. Attach a blade, cut your name, make a scabbard, sharpen it, and you're done. Only our workshop can experience the process of making a small sword, making a scabbard, and sharpening it. I will work while explaining how to make a Japanese sword, and I will not know until I experience the work of hitting iron to change the shape and making ripples, so I think it will be a great learning experience. We will proceed according to the ability of the person who will experience it, so there is no need to worry for minors and women. You can take photos and videos during production! Moreover! We have added an advanced course! We have started a course where you can make a sword that looks like a Japanese sword by attaching a sword to the sword. Since it is an advanced course, it will be a little difficult, but since the swordsmith will follow you well, anyone can experience it. Please be assured. The fee is the experience fee for one small sword. Two or more people can make one. In that case, please let us know when you make a reservation. If you make a reservation for two or more bottles, it will take about one hour for each bottle after the second one. Please participate with plenty of time at the end time. Please contact us as you can advance the start time. (Revised November 2021)

Same process as Japanese sword making

You can experience how a lump of iron becomes one work. The sheath is made of the same material as the Japanese sword sheath, and the whetstone is also the same.

* Option 1

For those who apply for an additional Japanese sword making tour at the same time, the tour fee is 25,000 yen → half price of 12500 yen !!

Advanced course! * Please add as an option.

This is a course where you can make a small sword that looks like a dagger by attaching a ho.

    Time schedule

    Explanation-Making fire (overall shaping)

    Explanation-Making fire (overall shaping) I will explain the manufacturing process of Japanese swords while looking at a sample. After that, the iron is heated and beaten to give it an overall shape.

    File and place in the soil

    File and place in the soil Use a file to remove the unevenness of the beaten iron, and place it on the ground to determine the shape of the blade pattern. The difference in the thickness of the soil creates a blade pattern.


    Quenching-file The heated iron is cooled rapidly and a blade pattern is added. I will file the whole thing.


    Inscription You will have to carve your name yourself.


    Sharpening In the same process as polishing a Japanese sword, it is sharpened using several types of whetstones.

    Making a sheath

    Making a sheath Make a white scabbard that fits perfectly with a knife, using a saw or chisel. We use the same material used for the white sheath of Japanese swords.


    Finish I will finish it using a fine whetstone.
