This KATANA is hand forged and hand sharpened using Japanese methods to create the perfect blade. Fully functional and battle ready. This work of art is hand made in our forge and sent directly to you.
The blade is made of High Carbon Steel that has been hammered down and folded on top of itself 13 times for 8192 layers. This evens out the carbon content and creates a stunning wave pattern on the blade. The beautiful red color of the blade is created with electroplating and extends sword maintenance intervals up to 6 months.
The blade is Full Tang and battle ready. It is strong enough to cut through a thick bamboo tree with a single strike yet sharp enough to slice paper. The sword has been hand polished and sharpened which creates a mirror surface.
This is a sharpened battle ready Samurai sword very suitable for iaido and kendo superior. It would also make a beautiful gift for a friend or loved one.

Absolutely amazing. Nothing loose, pushed my thumb against anything that could move and everything is solid. Saya was a little tight (could not release with just my thumb) but it was easily fixed with 60 seconds of light sanding. Delivery was about two weeks.
Eric your customer service is the best I've seen. The katana is sharp and beautiful. Thanks again - Patrick
The katana has exceeded my expectations. The handcraft of the sword is amazing! All my friends and family love it.
Took several pictures settled on that lol. Love it and the design I'm in love with it. Opening it was a pain having styrofoam all over my floor.
Absolutely wonderful. More than I expected.
This sword is beautiful. I like the weight and it's sharp.
This sword is no toy! It feels solid in my hands and the edge is sharp. The blade is stunning and the engraving is perfect, I will be returning for another sword.
It's beautiful. Honestly one of the best looking blades I've seen in a long time.
Very bad-ass. Amazing craftsmanship, built to last.
Love it, beautiful.
My fiancè loved this! Came super early too!
Took about two weeks to get but well worth the wait. The balance and beauty of this sword is mesmerizing.
Two of the best blades I've ever owned. Functional, super sharp, well balanced, exquisite handling. Designing a custom sword to be made for me soon. Outstanding craftsmanship all around!
The sword made it here faster than expected and it was in beautiful condition perfect bag I can't be happier with the product
I just received my Katana and I'm at a loss for words. Absolutely exquisite and masterful craftsmanship. I am very pleased. Everything was as ordered and beyond my expectation. The blade is beautiful. Communication was also very quick, responsive, and friendly. Will absolutely be purchasing more in the future. Thank you so much.
Amazing sword, definitely worth it!!!
The sword exceeded all expectations. The engraving is perfect (including the Japanese characters).
It is a gift for my son and I expect he will enjoy it very much.
Thank you for your excellent craftsmanship.
Lightweight and sharp
We bought this for our son and he loves it! We were so amazed at the craftsmanship!❤
I was able to crumple a piece of paper around a tree branch and then cut it width ways with this katana. I'm thrilled with the purchase and look forward to many years with mine.
This sword was an anniversary present for my wife.. she loves it!! The craftsmanship is above expectations!!
Contacted Wicked Swords for a special gift for our son, a soon-to-be First Degree Black Belt. Our son has also recently become very interested in the actual skill of sword making, and the Hand Forged Damascus Folded Steel Red Dragon Katana fit the bill perfectly - so beautiful and foreboding! What a fantastic piece of art, we can't wait to give the gift! Big thanks to Eric who walked us through the whole process, especially engraving, which was a HUGE plus! Great experience and thrilled with the product!
Incredible quality. Superb. Even better than I expected, seriously perfect.
I was very impressed with both the professionalism and the workmanship. After having one sword for about a week I decided to order another and they are both simply awesome, I train with them for several hours a day. The damascus steel looks incredible in red. Blown away... Now it's time to shop for a suit of armor. Absolutely recommend this company, I will be ordering matching walking dead swords from these folks very soon.
Quality piece of functional art
My husband loves his sword! Couldn't be happier with the quality.
Great product and could not be happier with Eric who has helped me tremendously throughout this sale. There was a mistake with the Tsuba I ordered and Eric had a completely new sword forged for me! By far, the best customer service i have experienced and the sword is unbelievable!
Just received my red dragon katana. It is beautiful to say the least, also Eric was great during the whole process. Will be ordering a walking dead katana soon. Kipper
I received my first sword this afternoon. Twelve days from ordering to collection. To say I am delighted is an understatement . Exceptional craftsmanship. Truly a work of art and very sharp. Many thanks to Eric at wicked swords. Regards. Nick.
This is my second sword from Wicked Swords. Great Value, genuine ray skin wrapped ,bamboo pegged handle, Quality steel, very well done polished Damascus blade, clay- tempering is even and well done and to top it off engraving is offered in several languages. UNBELIEVABLE!
Excellent dealer and sword. Highly recommended. Very good communication during the process. I asked some customizations and everything went fine. Sword was very well packed. Nice quality sword with a decent price. Beautiful and sharp blade, fine details. Engravings were much better than I expected. I am very happy with my beautiful sword. Thank you very much!
I received my katana yesterday morning and it is truly a thing of beauty. My wife even loves it. Thank Wicked Blades. You are true artists.
I received my shipment of swords today and I wanted to thank you for the experience. The swords are beautifully made and are exquisite in every detail. I’m very, very pleased! I will be proudly displaying these swords in my School this week and we can both look forward to much repeat business.
