In Deep thinking sometime I just think of Philosophical stuff ... and one of my Philosophy is ..

Human Life is Like Katana !

Please Read it and Tell me how you find it ?

Here it Goes ...

Katana ! Before it becomes one of the most Lethal Sword in world it’s just a Piece of Raw Steel with lots of  impurities , and then its heated , hammered and Folded thousands of time … It’s beaten until it gets perfect ! Then its Just put in cold water to take its Unique curve. Steel just takes all the heat and pressure without breaking and at the end it becomes Indestructible.

 Its Similar to what we humans face in life . We are hammered , heated and folded by our Parents and Teachers until we reach the  level where we can be perfect and Face the ever going war in the world ! Then when we get responsible enough we are just given freedom to cool off and find our own unique traits without not forgetting what our Parents and Teachers taught us.

and One who can take all the heat and Pressure without breaking becomes Indestructible…

I take it that you are just here to post links to your blog?

No ... Its not like that , Was Just too lazy to Copy and Past ! 

Either way I dig it and agree. Cool post...

Thanks :)

Nihonto were never folded "thousands of times". That would defeat the entire point of the folding, which is to even out the carbon content in the steel, needed as a result of the low quality of iron ore. Japan did not have large quantities of quality iron ore available, and the smelters had to create it from iron sand in a tatara furnace, ultimately leading to tamahagane steel.

The blades were folded on average 6 to 8 times, and rarely over 15 times (depending on the quality), resulting in several thousands of layers. But they were not folded thousands of times...

Nor does the sword becomes indestructible... Resilient, yes. But far from indestructible.

Please research your statements before you blog. Japanese swords are indeed beautiful works of arts and - rightfully so - weapons of renown. But uninformed, exaggerated statements such as yours regretfully only reinforce the worldwide perceived Hollywood myth of the Japanese sword. A shame really. Good swords, yes. But absolutely superior than for example a well-forged, pattern welded viking sword? Hardly. Different uses, different enemies, and thus different weapons.

No further comment on the general message you are trying to convey.

Thanks , and I agree we have different skills and qualities its similar to the unique curve of Sword , Each Katana is Different from another an also Unique...

and , Yes have just generally comparing Katana and Human life.   

I like your  line "Different uses, different enemies, and thus different weapons." Its very true !
