The Samurai Katana is the strongest and best performing Japanese style blade ever offered at this price. The use of 5160 spring steel, used in the construction of these shinogi zukuri katana, results in outstanding quality and performance. Strength, edge holding, and beauty have all been significantly enhanced by the use of this steel along with the complex folding process. The thicker, robust blade with ample niku ("meat") evidences a gunome style hamon and a dramatic ayasugi-hada with mokume and masame.

The tsuba is steel and engraved with a Samurai drawing his sword.

The fuchi and kashira also feature Samurai drawing and cutting engraved in them. The forging process for this sword can be seen on our website. Each of these blades is individually hand forged and folded, heat treated, and mounted. Even with these design parameters each sword is unique. Performance testing has shown them to be strong cutting blades with a good resistance to deflection. James cut cleanly through a 12 mat roll at the Bugei Open House with the Samurai style blade. The nakago are 10"  (25.4cm) with two mekugi. This provides for strength and safety while cutting. The saya and the silk tsuka ito are black.

General Blade Specifications (remember each sword is hand forged so there is always minor variation): Motohaba is 1 1/4" (3.17cm), Sakihaba is 1" (2.54cm), Torisori is 7/8" (2.2cm), Hamon is in Gyaku Choji style, and the kissaki is 1 3/4" (4.45cm).
