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 1095 High Carbon Steel that has been clay tempered. A special clay mixture is applied to the blade before quenching. This produces a hard edge for heavy cutting and a more flexible back for shock absorption. This also results in a beautiful, genuine hamon line. The blade has been forged with NO HI (blood groove) to enhance its strength and cutting power. The tip of the blade is Chu Kissaki (medium length).
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 sharpened and polished which creates a mirror surface. The blade is very sharp.
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.

This is the 3rd sword that I've purchased from Wicked Swords and I am exceedingly satisfied! It's not only a deadly weapon, but a beautiful work of art. I would recommend this sword to anyone - Scott
This is my second katana I've ordered through wicked swords, my first was a folded damascus steel, that is absolutely perfect, but this katana is forged 1095 and both are clay tempered, absolutely exquisite, I love them, I would highly recommend wicked swords if you want a quality sword. Thanks guys
I ordered the hand forged katana. I received it relatively fast, I think about 3 weeks. It is very nice and very sharp. It was engraved as ordered and appears to be very good quality. After use and practice with it I am concidering ordering another one or two. I think this sword would make an awesome gift.
