    One of the final and greatest steps into the creation of titanium swords is the layered sword, made of more than one titanium alloy. Not only does it look cool, certain alloys can be used for certain parts of the blade, eking out subtle performance enhancements. The techniques also alloy more flexibility in sword design.

    Here is the first one of its kind, a shobu zukuri katana blade, made from three different titanium alloys. 28" blade, at 11.3 ounces.
