This katana is handmade using Japanese methods to create the perfect sword.
The blade is meticulously hammered into shape in one solid piece with the full tang extending into the handle.
The steel is hardened with heat treatment and oil quenching. A special clay mixture is applied to the blade before quenching.
This clay tempering produces a hard edge for heavy cutting and a more flexible spine for shock absorption. It 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).
Once the blade is formed, it is hand sharpened and polished to a mirror finish.
This Samurai Sword Katana is perfect for martial arts and collectors. It would also make a beautiful gift for a friend or loved one.

The sword just arrived, she is beautiful, thank you. I might start collecting a few.
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.
