The wakizashi meaning "side inserted [sword]" is one of the traditionally made Japanese swords (nihonto) worn by the samurai class in feudal Japan.The wakizashi has a blade between 30 and 60 cm (12 and 24 inch), with wakizashi close to the length of a katana being called o-wakizashi and wakizashi closer to tant length being called ko-wakizashi. The wakizashi being worn together with the katana was the official sign that the wearer was a samurai or swordsman of feudal Japan. When worn together the pair of swords were called daish, which translates literally as "big-little". The katana was the big or long sword and the wakizashi the companion sword. Wakizashi are not necessarily just a smaller version of the katana; they could be forged differently and have a different cross section. The best quality of high carbon steel is at 1095, the carbon content was 1.03%, and the element contains a small amount of chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, after heat treatment can reach HRc58-60 hardness, toughness is very good, but not resistant to rust, more be applied to traditional european-style hunting knife, large cutting knife and military dao. Such as the United States during world war ii "KA - BAR" saber is in 1095 as the blade material. The clay temper procedure is really complicated, although what we show you is only four steps. The blade will be set apart as 2, one is the back of the blade and the other is the cut edge side. The back side will be stick with the clay and the other side will be covered by the powder and other mixture which is protected as a secret recipe. Coz the different thickness of the back of the blade and the cut edge side, and the different of the clay mud and the mixture, when the blade cooling to be a same low temperature at the same time after the heating by high temperature, that is why the blade has a radian, and there is a clay temper wave line. After the blade has been shaped, the sword would be quenched. Today we quench our swords in either water or oil. Quenching a sword in water is more difficult to control, but yields better results. The defect rate is about five times higher than oil quenching, which is much more stable and easier to control.
Blades quenched in oil are still considerably hardened and do have superior flexibility compared to a water quenched blade. The more rapidly a blade cools down, the harder it becomes. Thus, when a hot blade enters the water, the water also gains heat and the blade will cool more gradually. Therefore, the first part of the blade that enters the water will be the hardest. Therefore, the technique of quenching was also very important.Katana swords would simply enter the water edge and tip first, leaving the spine or back and lower section of the blade softer. This was also done for practical reasons, as the'softer' sections were better for absorbing shock and impact and employed for defensive measures.
