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.

The blade is unsharpened by default, and the customer can opt for free sharpening service.

The Katana is well assembled and the ito wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications may vary slightly.
