You can even customize your sword color and design through our build your own katana option.

We use top quality materials, including premium 1060 and 1095 high carbon steel to craft completely authentic samurai katana swords. All of our katana 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.
