This sword is a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. Our steel blades have been designed from the ground up, to offer perfect balance for regular Iaido & Kenjutsu use. After sharpening, the blade is etched with an oxidation process to give the surface it's black color.

The Katana is well assembled and the ito wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications may vary slightly.
