Katana Description

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.

Blade Materials

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.

Traditional Katana with A Twist

Take a traditional handmade katana and use high carbon Damascus steel. It is really nice looking, good sheath, strong blade, and folded, pattern welded Damascus steel. It is very strong and sharp and cut through my mats without much sharpening.
