Each sword blade is individually hand forged, heat treated, tempered and polished by skilled hands creating a true battle ready weapon.

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). It takes time to produce folded blades of this quality and this is why our Imperial Sword Collection is more difficult to acquire. We take great pride in the quality and performance of or swords, we will not compromise this quality and/or performance.

High End Folded Katana
Phil (Tampa) 5/20/2013 10:47 PM
This katana blows the competition out of the water. I am a long time collector and samurai swords enthusiast. This is my favorite piece. You can see the quality in the folds of the blade. It is a remarkable samurai sword. I use it to cut targets and it is strong, sharp, and precise. I can't say enough good things about the katan.
