1095 Carbon Steel Katana Swords

For a blade that keeps a very sharp edge and is easy to resharpen, 1095 high carbon steel is very desirable. Generally, 1095 is the standard of high carbon steel in most swords and katana blades. It offers the highest carbon content and yields the sharpest edge, but it can also be fragile if not crafted by a master swordmaker.

Whether you’re a novice collector or an experienced sword buyer, the carbon steel swords from Swords of Northshire are ideal for your needs in the dojo, in cutting practice, or to put on display. Explore our massive collection of swords and knives made of 1095 high carbon steel today.
