All too often the more ornate and affordable Katana designs out there are let down by stainless steel (read: purely decorative) blades. But these are no mere ornaments..

While all the Katana swords in the Ryujin Art Sword series are primarily designed for display purposes - the 1045 carbon steel blades are well tempered and surprisingly strong (a well tempered 1045 carbon steel blade like this one is only slightly less durable than a 1060 carbon steel blade) so that the end result is a true piece of sword art. Something that isn't just 'bark' - but actually has some serious 'bite' to it if ever needed (after all, a purely decorative sword just doesn't have the same presence as a live blade, and the first question anyone who spies a decorative sword will ask 'is it real?'..)

In this case, you get not just one but a full set of THREE blades to make a classically themed Daisho Set (including FREE 3-tier sword stand and a matching Tanto). But unlike most other Daisho sets on the market with stainless steel blades, this set has the real thing. And not only that, each blade is designed to be fast and lightweight, with the flagship Katana weighing only 2.1lbs yet balanced 5 7/8" from the tsuba, making it a popular choice for those martial artists who like a super quick and nimble Katana rather than a 'powercutter'.

The Katana and the Wakizashi are engraved with Japanese characters that translate as 'throughout time, God respects the ambitious' and both of these blades also feature a bo-hi to decrease the blades weight even further, also amplifying the Tachi-Kaze (sword wind sound) while the Tanto has a solid bodied blade for maximum durability.

Decked out in black fittings with a 'rebel red' saya and a classic Chrysanthemum themed tsuba on the Katana and Wakizashi no matter which way you look at it, this Daisho set offers exceptional value for money and is suitable for both display and occasional light cutting practice (water filled milk jugs, cardboard boxes, river cane, etc).

I've bought a Ryujin 1045 katana before so I knew what I was getting into, and I think they're good. They cut good. The edge is softer and the sword will even bend if you don't have good edge alignment (just bend it back), but I usually have to sharpen my swords after heavy cutting anyway, no matter the steel quality. Obviously the hamon is fake. Obviously the fittings aren't fantastic. The tsuba and what not are zinc alloy and not iron, the ray skin is synthetic. But who cares?? Three matching, functional, aesthetically pleasing blades for 100 bucks??? Totally awesome! The only minor problem I have with it is the tanto fittings are somewhat loose so I've got some homework to do to fix that before I chop down trees with it, but man, what a crazy crazy steal this is. I'm shocked they're not sold out already. Oh yeah, and they came well sharpened. I've got way more expensive swords that didn't do me that courtesy.
