Excellent Decoration

It's important to note first of all that while these swords are sharp and are very much real, they are far from the weapon-like capabilities of a real Katana. The centre of gravity is not where it should be, and the flexibility is completely different. But that's fine, considering that here in the UK, the most you should be using it for is playing real life fruit ninja. The real purpose of this sword, and certainly the reason I purchased it for, is it's decorative purpose. Katana's are absolutely beautiful swords, and this is no exception.
In this case, the sword's design is very simplistic with minimalism in mind - so no lovely artwork on the Tsuba (handguard), instead a clean hollow shape with a matte finish. Very nice woodwork on the saya (scabbard) and the only concern I had was at the start there were some wood particles that came out, most likely due to the long delivery process.
The sword is made of Carbon Steel, and as a result it's important to regularly maintain the sword, where I recommend using Choji oil. Unfortunately, the sword does not come with a traditional maintenance kit and as far as I'm aware, kits are not sold on the Bladespro website, so I had to order one off of Amazon instead. This is my only real complaint.
Overall an excellent decoration suitable for all enthusiasts, especially for the exceptionally low price.

Hi Greg,
Thank you so much for your review and the great detail provided. We are happy to hear that you liked your sword and we will work to get the balance better. As for the maintenance kits, we used to sell those, but now, shipping liquids internationally, specially oil. as they are flammable, are not allowed to be sent. So we had to remove the kits from our site. We are working to get a local supplier, so hopefully we can bring them back again. Enjoy the sword!
Thanks - The BladesPro Team

High quality sword

Really lovely sword, simple and classy. Would be 5 stars but is just a little loose fitting into the sheath. Happy with my purchase. Just for info i was charged a £20 custom fee for a blade around £150 which arrived promptly after the fee was paid. Fair and high quality Thank you!

Hi Alex,
Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We are so happy to hear that you like your sword. I will send you a private message with tips on how to fix the fit of the saya. Thanks! The BladesPro Team

Sword Crafting In 3 Simple Steps

All our swords are hand-crafted using traditional forging methods that have been in place for thousands of years.

Click the tabs above to see exactly how we'll make your sword - from Design, to Forging, to Finishing.

1. Design

Designed by experts.

First, your sword is designed by experts who've crafted thousands of swords. Our product team carefully plans the combination of aesthetics and features that will make up the sword:

Aesthetics: Shape, design, colours, ornaments and decorations, and fittings to determine the look and style of the final piece.

Features: Practicalities such as blade length, blade width, steel type, handle and scabbard dimensions, as well as weight and whether or not the sword will include a Bo-Hi.

2. Forging

Forged by Craftsmen... by hand.

For the inner core of the blade, impurities are removed and steel created via the smelting process. The carbon level is varied (higher or lower) to get a result of softer or harder steel. The brick-sized piece of prepared steel is then forged until soft, and hammered until elongated. It's then folded over and over until all impurities are removed and the desired shape is achieved.

For the outer part of the blade, the heat/pound/fold technique is applied up to 3,000 times to create a strong blade, which is then painted with a clay and charcoal mixture and thrust into water to finalise.

3. Finishing

Finishing touches.

The blade is then polished and a handle attached. From there, the sword is adorned with desired fittings and ornaments, engraved (if desired) and lacquer is applied to the wooden scabbard to create a beautiful, functional piece. It's then carefully packed and shipped out using our courier service, arriving at your door safe and sound.
