Product Description

We get alot of questions here at Swords of The East. One of the most asked is "What is the BEST katana you have?" Well, we usually have a hard time answering that question, but it has been answered for us. This new Paul Chen sword, The Tori Xl Katana, is without a doubt one of the finest Japanese swords to ever grace our site. It all starts with a masterfully hand crafted blade which is folded out of ASSAB K120 C Swedish steel. The polish is done so as to bring out the best hada (grain pattern) your eyes will ever see. The blade is formed with the new geometry of the XL series so cutting is a breeze. The beauty doesn't stop with the blade. The scabbard is a "fingerprintless" brown lacquer with genuine buffalo horn accents and a "clam shell" holding portion. Iron tsuba with crane design and a handle wrapped in gorgeous brown suede with black same (rayskin) underneath. A simply incredible example of traditional swordmaking.

The Tori katana combines truly elegant furniture and a powder-steel folded blade with the functionality of our Performance Series. The Tori features a Flying Crane themed Tsuba and Fuchi/Kashira while the Menuki are Kabuto or Japanese helmets. The high quality brown leather Tsuka-ito is wrapped over black Same. The Saya is wrapped at the mouth with black-lacquered rattan and then finished in a textured brown. The Tori is available in three folded steel cutting blade profiles and three Iaito blade lengths.

Heavy Competitive Cutting
Designed strictly for competitive cutting, our XL Katana blades incorporate the geometry, strength, weight and profile needed for successful cuts on substantial targets. Featuring differential heat treatment and a narrow edge angle, these wide blades will reward good technique with clean cuts and excellent durability.

Unless you are a millionaire and can afford a sword forged from a meteor, this is the baddest sword anyone can own. It can take incredible damage, even on a battlefield and still be ready for combat for a lifetime by simply resharpening it. An ancient Samurai warrior would be proud of this Katana.
