Best Selection of Real Katanas
Real katanas are the traditional swords of Japan, and are a source of great pride for many Japanese people. These swords are made with a specific type of steel called tamahagane, which is developed through a complex process of folding and forging. This process creates a blade that is incredibly strong and resistant to wear. The shape of the katana is unique, with a curved blade and two sharp points. These swords are incredibly sharp, and were designed to be used in close-quarters combat. The sword is traditionally paired with a companion blade, known as the wakizashi. Together, these blades form the daisho, a symbol of power and prestige.
We’re known for our made-to-order pieces and huge selection. When you purchase a hand-forged katana sword from us, you are able to freely select the design of the ito (handle wrap), same’gawa (under wrap), saya (sheath), and sageo (sheath cord). You can even customize your sword color and design through our build your own katana option.
Carbon steel blades are the most common material used for crafting katana swords. As the name implies, carbon steel blades are composed of a combination of iron and carbon. This material is very strong and durable and can be heat treated to create a strong, sharp edge that is capable of slashing through even tough materials. Carbon steel is also relatively easy to maintain and sharpen, making it an ideal choice for those interested in making and caring for their own katana.
We use top quality materials, including premium 1060 and 1095 high carbon steel to craft completely authentic blades. All of our swords are fully functional and can be hand sharpened to a razor edge if desired. Before you add a sword to your cart, simply select if you wish it to be unsharpened or hand sharpened. Since each piece we create is made of hardened steel, even the unsharpened blades can be dangerous and must be treated with care.
True katanas are a traditional Japanese sword characterized by a curved, single-edged blade that is long and slender. The katana is the most iconic of all Japanese swords, and its history dates back to the 12th century. True katanas are handmade by master swordsmiths using a specific technique that involves heating and hammering the steel to create a unique grain pattern known as the hamon. The katana is still used in modern martial arts such as Kenjutsu and Iaido, and is highly prized for its craftsmanship and beauty. Collectors will pay a premium for genuine antiques, and some of the oldest examples can command prices in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
