This project involved studying the forging methods and evolution of the katana through Japanese history, especially in relation to the Japanese Samurai. We studied the historical perspective that they came from within, from the birth of the samurai to their disbandment, and attempted to forge our own katana using traditional methods and materials. We added this information to a website as a part of a larger project to fill in this type of information across different cultures.
