FREE WORLDWIDE shipping on this sword! We are proud to introduce our new Imperial Forge "Competition Cutting Katana". This sword is masterfully hand crafted and limited to 100 pieces worldwide. Using specially forged and tempered folded steel we've produced a high quality blade that truly out performs our competition.
The Imperial sword Collection exceeds the expectations of martial artistes for strength, cutting power, and most importantly, craftsmanship. Each sword blade is individually hand forged, heat treated, tempered and polished by skilled hands creating a true battle ready weapon.
The Limited Edition blade boasts a beautiful half Bo-Hi, a thicker blade and longer kissasi for the riggers of tameshigiri.
Keeping with Japanese traditions our Imperial Sword Collection is crafted using only traditional materials and fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel) are expertly made and finely crafted from black iron.
The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of polished brass and each tsuka (handle) is covered in ray skin and tightly wrapped in the traditional cross over style ito (braid) with Blue cord. It takes time to produce folded blades of this quality and this is why our Imperial Sword Collection is more difficult to acquire.
It is best to order or reserve your blade as soon as possible as we do not always have full availability in stock. We take great pride in the quality and performance of or swords, we will not compromise this quality and performance just to sell more.
The Imperial Forge Competition Katana also comes with a silk bag and maintenance kit, as well as free domestic ground shipping.
