Japanese Katana FAQ

If you are looking for a quality katana at an affordable price (from 200 euros) to display at home and practice cutting, we recommend our store.

If you are looking for a katana from antiquity, which has actually been in war, it is advisable to turn to auction houses specializing in Japanese art.

First, you have to choose the material used for the blade: manganese, T10 steel, damascus and others.

Then comes the choice of the handle and the scabbard of the katana. On each of these elements, there are various parts. Each of these parts is explained in detail in our lexicon

The choice of a katana also depends on its vocation: only collection and exhibition or cutting practice? For cutting, it is recommended to use a sharp katana. Although all our katana cut, we can sharpen them on demand so that they cut like a weapon of war. 

We practiced tameshigiri (cutting test) on all our katana. A katana is still a cutting weapon. Even those intended for display still have a cutting edge, as this is the primary function of a Japanese katana.

If you want to practice cutting with our katana, we recommend you to take the sharpening option so that it cuts like a razor.  

As long as you are of age, it is legal to have a katana in your home. 

Here are the basic tips for maintaining your katana:

  • avoid touching the blade
  • take the blade out of its sheath
  • oil the wooden handle
  • clean the blade

    The frequency of cleaning the katana depends on the environment in which it is stored. For more details, please consult our detailed guide.
