Handmade swords are designed and look just like all other swords. However, their construction is totally different. Handmade swords are made by craftsmen and smiths. These people who work with metals make them go under a very long and complicated process by heating metals at high temperatures and then molding and hammering them into the swords they want to design. Not an easy process. Right? A lot of factors are kept in mind by smiths while constructing these swords. Strength, flexibility, balance and hardness are the most basic of them and are quite difficult to get in handmade swords. These swords have more details than the other ones and are appreciated for their genuine craftsmanship and intricate details.
