Custom-Made Hand Forged Samurai Sword Japanese Katana
Your custom-made katana begins its life in the famed swordsmithing town of Longquan located in the remote, green mountains of Qinxi. The art of blade making has continued, unabated, for over 2,600 years near the cold, shining waters of the Ou River. Your sword's exact crafting methods are entirely up to you, and will depend on your selections. No matter what your preferences are, you can expect the swordsmith who creates your sword to pay the utmost attention to every detail — from the blade length and material to sharpening and engraving.
Your Sword Options
For your custom katana, there are several options in each category including:
Tsuba: Select from over a hundred unique blade guard designs
Ito Color: Choose from silk or leather handle wrapping in a variety of hues
Hamon Type: Explore several temper line styles
You may also request customization for your Japanese katana sword beyond what is listed, including blade color (natural, black, red, blue), a straight ninjato style blade, blade geometry, battle wrap, rayskin wrapped saya, saya inscription, and more.
