The samurai sword is a type of sword used by samurai (replaced by katana). Since ancient times, the samurai sword has been known for its beautiful shape as a weapon, and many famous swords have been collected as artworks, symbolizing the soul of samurai.One of the biggest characteristics of the katana is that the body itself shows a sense of art beyond the appearance decoration.

What is Hamon from Katana?

The so-called "Hamon" is a professional term for covering the blade with soil and burning it. The blade is covered with soil that does not require high hardness, and then heated to a specific temperature. When the red and hot blade enters the water, the bare part quickly cools, while the temperature change in the part covered with soil is not very significant, resulting in a difference in hardness from the bare part, achieving a combination of hardness and softness. In the case of high blade hardness, Still able to maintain the good toughness of the blade.

Is the Katana battle ready ?

Our katana is independently designed and produced by artisans who have been in the industry for decades through more than a dozen traditional processes such as forging, quenching, polishing, and grinding. Each katana has undergone a lot of grinding, making the blade very sharp, allowing you to perform Tameshigiri cutting. In addition, higher level katana will use more different advanced grinding methods, which means that craftsmen will spend a few more days on this katana to make it sharp like a razor.

How to sharpen a Katana?

Generally speaking, our katana is already sharpened. But when you made the purchase, for some reason, you chose not to sharpen it. If you want to sharpen it yourself later, we will provide the following simple sharpening methods.

There are 4 main steps to sharpening a Katana:

Shaping work using an uchigumori stone to remove rust and scratches.

The blade is then passed over progressively smaller and finer stones in an effort to remove the marks from the uchigumori stone.

Hazuya stones glued to traditional Japanese paper are then used in order to remove the microscopic scratches that are left from the previous polishing.

Finally a Jizuya stone is used and rubbed on the surface of the blade, this is a long process done until the stone wears out.

How to distinguish a true katana?

The various parts of a real katana have professional terms, and you can distinguish whether the purchased product is a real katana or a simple and only katana shaped word based on the integrity of these parts.

Katana Parts and terminology

Why is the surface of the blade smeared with oil? Can I remove the lubricating oil?

The purpose of using oil to maintain the blade is to form an oil film on the surface of the blade to isolate the oxygen in the air and prevent the daily storage from oxidizing and rusting the blade.So it is not recommended that you erase. Additionally, Katana should not be placed in direct sunlight or in damp or excessively dry areas. If you touch the back of the katana with your hand, or if you have dripped acidic liquid on the blade, you need to wipe it clean with a clean cotton cloth before spraying maintenance oil again.
