This KATANA is hand forged and hand sharpened using Japanese methods to create the perfect blade. Fully functional and battle ready. Our Katanas are hand made in our forge and sent directly to you.
The blade is made of 1060 high carbon steel and has been laminated in a Maru style. It has a long Hi (blood groove) on each side. This allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung. It also balances the sword to achieve optimal performance.
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.

Wicked Swords and Eric are incredible business people and Craftsmen. Bought a custom sword for my baby sister's wedding present and it was immaculate. Highly recommended.
Thanks so much for helping me with my BEAUTIFUL KATANA... My package arrived several days earlier than projected ... I opened it up today and it is stunning !!!! The engraving was very personal and beautiful. Nicely wrapped SAGEO and TSUKA and it's SAYA is flawless. Thanks so much Eric. My handmade katana is a pleasure to have.
I have been looking around for a while to get a custom Katana. Most places were sold out or had incredibly long wait times. Then I found Wicked Swords. Very easy to place an order and I could order right away. I also had several questions and they were answered very quickly. I didn't have to wait very long for the katana to be made either. I got to see pictures of the finished product before it was shipped. I was very impressed with the look. When I got the sword and was able to hold it in my hands and look at it in person I was so impressed. Every aspect of the sword looked amazing. The blade was the most impressive of all though. 1095 carbon steel with real clay tempered hamon line. It looks so perfect I almost don't want to cut with it. I am very happy with my purchase and I would definitely buy from again. I would also recommend this site to anyone else looking for a custom Katana.
All one can say is thank you from my heart. What truly outstanding craftsmanship. Wicked Swords has my full respect! -Justin
Excellent quality weapon! Was amazed at the craftsmanship of this katana and the customer service. Did not expect to have photos of the katana sent to me once it was completed before it was ready to ship. Received it quickly and it may in fact be the most beautifully crafted one in my collection. I will be purchasing additional blades through Wicked Swords in the future!
The sword is a good blade and well put together - fit and finish is solid and the balance is good. The blade is sharp and the handle is very tight. Overall this sword is better than those I have owned costing three to four times more. Great experience with a very good master sword maker! - Mark
Have to admit I was skeptical b/c of low price. I ordered unsharpened blade for practicing forms, tying a sageo knot, wearing sword, Iaido, etc. 1060 carbon steel, geometry good, fits snug, no rattle. Fits better than my pricier swords. Blade locks/unlocks perfectly. These were my biggest concerns since I didn't order a sword for cutting. International shipping makes it hard to wait, but was reasonably fast all things considered. I tell you what: If you're thinking of buying one of these, do it. For the money, you really can't go wrong. I paid $199 and got 1060 carbon steel, a saya, custom fittings, wrap, sageo, etc. Don't know how he's able to offer all that + free shipping for price. Good job Wicked Swords!
Outstanding! Perfect blade profile to go through most anything. Strong and sharp. Great value for money!
