Historically, the katana sword (also known and samurai sword) were one of the Japanese weapons that were used by the samurai of ancient and feudal Japan. The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance with a curved, single-edged blade, a circular or squared guard, and long two-handed grip. Western historians have said that katana were among the finest cutting weapons in world military history. Katana defines a sword of this description that longer than 24". This katana measures 40.5" and is made from blended high carbon Damascus steel with brass bolsters.
This gladius sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel. Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel. There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. This makes the perfect steel for swords. The handle is wood with brass bolsters. It comes with a wooden and leather sheath and has an HRC of 55-56.
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.
