When it comes to samurai swords, the 1095 carbon steel katana sword is a popular choice for its durability and sharpness. This steel is known for its high carbon content, which provides the sword with its hardness and ability to hold a sharp edge. At Swords of Northshire, we offer a variety of carbon steel katana swords that are hand-forged by master swordsmiths using traditional techniques.
One of the standout features of our carbon steel katana swords is their sharpness. Our swords are hand sharpened to a razor-edge, allowing them to easily slice through targets with minimal effort. The sharpness of our swords is a testament to the skill and expertise of our master swordsmiths. Each 1095 steel sword is also tempered, which provides the blade with its flexibility and helps to prevent it from becoming too brittle.
For a blade that keeps a very sharp edge and is easy to resharpen, 1095 high carbon steel is very desirable. Generally, 1095 steel is the standard in most swords and katana blades. 1095 steel 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 sword collection from Swords of Northshire is ideal for your needs in the dojo, in cutting practice, or to put on display. Explore our massive selection of swords and knives made of high carbon steel today.
