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 beautiful wave pattern on the blade. 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.

I just love my new katana! Eric is a pleasure to work with. I had them make me a longer tsuka (handle) 12 5/8 long. The steel they use is also thicker and wider than my other swords which makes it feel stronger in my hands. You can see the quality is top notch. Thanks Eric for all your help!
