About Our Products

The katana, a traditional Japanese sword, is recognized by its curved, slender, single-edged blade, circular or squared guard, and grip long enough to accommodate two hands. Often used by samurai warriors, it typically measures over 23.86 inches in blade length, combining both aesthetic beauty and practical design. Historically, it’s considered one of the most effective cutting weapons ever made.
To keep your katana in prime condition, a consistent cleaning routine is crucial. We recommend using a traditional sword cleaning kit, which includes all necessary materials. Start by wiping down the blade with a soft cloth or rice paper to remove old oil. Apply polishing powder with a clean piece of rice paper, then oil the blade lightly to protect it from moisture and rust.
The wakizashi is a shorter sword typically measuring around 50 cm. Traditionally paired with a katana, this duo was worn by samurai. The wakizashi served as a secondary, more convenient option for close combat and was a constant companion of the samurai.
Not exactly a sword, the tanto is a traditional Japanese dagger. With a sharp edge, and sometimes double-edged, it was designed primarily for stabbing but is also effective for cutting. Over time, tantos have become more decorative, particularly towards the end of the Samurai era.
A full tang katana features a blade that extends throughout the handle, providing enhanced durability and balance. This construction method is ideal for creating a robust and reliable sword.
Clay tempering is a sophisticated method used during sword forging that enhances the blade’s hardness. Artisans apply a unique clay mixture to the blade before heating and quenching it, which results in a hard, resilient edge and a softer spine.
1045 Carbon Steel is a medium carbon steel that offers a good balance of durability and ease of forging, making it a popular choice for katanas. It contains approximately 0.45% carbon, providing a blend of strength and flexibility suitable for sword making.
1060 Carbon Steel has about 0.60% carbon content, making it harder and more durable than 1045, but still quite manageable for crafting. 1095 Carbon Steel, with a 0.95% carbon content, is harder and holds an edge longer, but requires more careful handling during forging to maintain its integrity.
Due to the specific nature and potential hazards associated with our products, purchasers must be at least 21 years old to ensure they handle these items responsibly.
