National Geographic Special: Forging a Katana

I’ve been a bit of a Japanophile for many, many years.  I took Japanese in grad school for a year… and my (modest) knowledge of Japanese culture was enormously useful in this work situation.  Nihon ni itte kitai.  (I think I have that right: “I want to go to Japan.”)

Here’s a program about how katanas – the Samurai Sword – are forged.  Nice program.

Of course, so much of this begs the question… just how did they figure all of this out?  It had to be decades upon decades (centuries?) of trial and error – but some of the ideas, like selectively coating the blade in different types and thicknesses of clay before quenching?  What on earth inspired them to even try that?


And please keep in mind, I’m on a job search for:

  • Plastics Design Engineer
  • New Product Introduction / Project Engineer
  • Cost Reduction Engineer
