Elegant Katana – The Quintessence of Samurai Legacy
Immerse yourself in the revered tradition of the samurai with this exquisite katana. The katana, with its origins deeply rooted in ancient and feudal Japan, was the weapon of choice for the legendary samurai warriors. With its distinctive curved, single-edged blade, a circular or squared guard, and a long two-handed grip, the katana has become an emblem of martial refinement and artistry. Acknowledged by Western historians as one of the finest cutting weapons fashioned in world military history, a true katana is defined as a sword longer than 24 inches. Our katana extends to an impressive 40.5 inches and is meticulously crafted from blended high-carbon Damascus steel, accented with brass bolsters, embodying both beauty and might.
Blade Composition This masterwork is forged from pattern-welded Damascus steel, renowned for its strength and aesthetic appeal. The blade's core is constituted of 11 pieces of steel, folded five times to amass an astounding 352 layers. Such precision engineering results in an optimal balance of hardness and durability, with a Rockwell hardness rating of 55 to 56 HRC. The 1095 high-carbon steel, employed in the highest echelons of sword making, ensures a blade of unparalleled toughness capable of retaining a razor-sharp edge while also possessing the necessary flexibility to withstand forceful impacts.

Made very well and super sharp the real deal .🤙🏻
Looks great but there were five raised rough grey-black marks on the blade all towards the tip on one side. I have not had time to look into the best method of removal.
I bought these for my groomsman gift. First, they gave a nice bulk discount. Second, the swords were absolutely astonishingly perfect! I ended up buying more for my dad, father in law, cousin (and myself). They were also able to get them to me super fast since I was in a pinch and ran out of time. I am really impressed.
