Folding of the metal is not shown, but the vid gives an idea of the process.

This made me remember Kill Bill movie...Hatori Hanzi infamous Samurai sword....such a laborious process to produce an outstanding weapon of yesteryear.

The best in the East.
Heart and soul are the main ingredient to make this sword.

Interesting, but in my opinion it's not like that how the battle katana is made...
In my opinion, This is just for decoration.
True Samurai's Katana takes weeks to be born and passes by 6 or more major steps.
The Shiraha (blade) only passes by at least 3 major steps with 3 differents artisans, The Tsuka, tsuba and the saya and other details are as important as the blade itself and takes weeks aswell.
For instance, katana's famous deadly curve is not made by twisting tention, but only with 1 fast gesture soaking in cold water after heating the Shiraha.

#4 of course it not a damast made or hatori hanzo sword. But its surely no decoration. Lets say its an average handmade katana. Most steps are cut out on the vid. Still its a fine, handcrafted sword.

Using a Guzheng song (a chinese instrument) in a Japanese making process is kind of odd.
