    Japanese swordsmithing | The most useful process is the folding, where the metals are forge welded, folded, and welded again, as many as 16 times. The alternating layers combine hardness with ductility to greatly enhance the toughness. Currently, tamahagane is only made three or four times a year and is only sold to the master swordsmiths to use once it is made. The forging of a Japanese blade typically took many days or weeks, and was considered a sacred art. Several artists were involved.
