Kichi Folded Steel Katana

The sword once unpacked and cleaned, it was beautiful.
The blade much darker than advertised but better for it, with a purple to blue colour, very pretty matching the handle with purple wrap.
Over all a very nice piece and worth the wait and money.

Hi Stuart,
So happy to hear that you liked your sword. We see what you mean by the colour being a bit lighter in the images. Sometimes the light used in the photos creates reflections making some colours look brighter or lighter, but we are glad that you are pleased with the real thing!
Thanks - The BladesPro Team

A Katana fit for a Prince

Wow just wow, this Kichi manganese Katana actually look's better than in the webpage picture. Unique for it's colour Purple? The late great Purple man Prince would probably choose this one, it's made with manganese steel so it should be pretty tough.
Great piece of work.

Hi there - this is great to hear! Thanks for leaving us a review and really happy you like it. The purple is very unique, and beautiful. Enjoy! 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.
