The quality on this three-piece katana set must be seen to be believed. The blades are high quality carbon steel with machined clay tempered look. Don't let the price fool you - these are high quality swords for display use. These are functional weapons that just happen to liven any scenery around them.
With stars decorating the saya (sheath) and tsuba (guard) and gold eagle wings peering out from behind the fabric wrapping on the tsuka (grip), this is exactly the type of katana you would expect to see on the battlefield... if we ever had a war without guns.
Classic and simple looking at first, further inspection will reveal all of the details that make this set so special. They are Japanese style swords with decidedly American features. Another nice design feature is that the eagle wings get farther from the tsuba (guard) as the blades get longer; right next to the tsuba on the shortest sword, and at the bottom of the tsuka on the longest sword.
These ship semi-sharp with a coating of oil to make sure they are in perfect, unrusted condition when they arrive at your door.
Includes the easy to assemble three-piece wood stand and everything shown. Swords are 39", 31", and 21.5". Stand is 12" high. Makes a great gift! All of our products are packaged in plain brown boxes with no markings to identify our company to make sure no surprises are spoiled.
The carbon steel blade makes these swords safer to use in combat demonstrations and cutting exercises when compared with stainless steel weapons, because they are less likely to break or snap. Stainless steel and carbon steel both have their advantages - be sure to choose the one that suits the true purpose of your weapon.
