This Martial Arts Katana offers great quality at a reasonable price. Featuring our hand forged and polished 1060 carbon steel blade, designed for optimal balance and handling. 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. The blade is hand sharpened with niku (for durability). The sword comes equipped with a black matte hardwood saya, silk sageo/ito, alloy fittings, genuine same' (rayskin) and silk wrapped tsuka (handle). The Katana is well assembled and the ito wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications may vary slightly.
