Imperial Forge Functional Katanas


Imperial Forge endeavors to produce the "perfect Japanese katana" with the hand-crafted excellence and superior performance of traditional Japanese swords.  These are precision crafted, fully functional katana made to the highest standards for the study of Kenjutsu and Iaido. This pursuit of excellence has lead the forge to alter their hand made katana lines to include two superior series of blades: the Imperial Forge Forged Steel Series, and Folded Steel Series.  The Forged Line replaces their earlier "Spring Steel" and "High Carbon" series of swords with an incredible blend of benefits: this Forged Steel Series features higher quality 1050 Spring Steel for blades tempered to be just as flexible as the previous 1020 Spring Steel line, but simultaneously more durable than the previous T10 High Carbon line, giving the best of both worlds, and then some!  The current Folded Steel Series maintains a tradition of incredible power, cutting prowess, and craftsmanship. Imperial Forge's dedication to quality has lead to expert endorsements for their truly superior line of Japanese weapons.
