If you’re looking for a battle-ready black bladed katana that’s made with quality high carbon steel, look no further than this weapon from Swords of Northshire. Made of 1095 carbon steel for the ultimate blend of flexibility and hardness, each of our swords is hand-forged through traditional Japanese techniques passed down from generation to generation.
After the creation of the blade, our smiths etch it with an oxidation process that gives its surface a unique black hue. Choose from a variety of sageo, genuine rayskin, and ito colors to customize your purchase.
We hand make each of these black steel katanas for sale, so production time varies between one and two weeks. You can also expect some small variations in the specs due to the fact that our black katanas are fully made to order. Some notable features of this sword include:
