Although katana are often considered purely decorative objects, they can also be very functional.

Therefore, they are excellent pieces for collectors and people who appreciate quality craftsmanship. My Katana specializes in selling real katanas that can be as decorative as they are effective!
How much does a katana cost?
The price of a katana depends on many factors, including the quality of the steel and the degree of wear. In general, however, katanas are not cheap weapons and can cost as much as a high-end firearm. As such, katanas are not recommended for first-time buyers or those on a budget. Interested individuals should research katanas thoroughly before purchasing to ensure they are getting a quality product.

Features of the Katana
Traditional Japanese katana are characterized by their distinctive appearance. The blade is usually curved, with a sharp edge on one side and a blunt edge on the other. The handle is also curved, and it is wrapped with a tight cord called tsuka-ito. The tsuba, or guard, is used to protect the hand from the opponent’s blade and also serves as a counterweight to balance the blade. The saya, or scabbard, is usually made of wood and lacquered to protect the blade from corrosion. Although the katana is often associated with samurai warriors, it was actually used by many Japanese martial artists, including ninjas and ronin.
Today, katanas are still used in some traditional Japanese martial arts, such as kendo and iaido. However, they are also popular collector’s items and many modern sword makers create replicas of historical blades. Whether you are interested in the history or art of the katana, these swords remain an impressive sight.
In addition to its physical characteristics, the katana is also steeped in tradition and symbolism. For example, many katanas are passed down from generation to generation within a samurai family. As such, the katana is more than just a sword, it is a symbol of honor and duty.
