About the RK Clay Tempered Katana Series
If you are looking for an affordable, reliable and well made entry level Katana, the Ronin Katana clay tempered 1045 carbon steel blades from the RK Series line are hands down one of the best, if not THE best, options currently available on the sword market.
Nimble, alive and with truly awesome handling that puts some much more expensive swords to shame - the fittings are attractive but basic, because all of the attention to detail is where it counts - on the blade itself.
Perfect for frequent practice, the genuine hamon (created by traditional clay tempering techniques) is unique to each sword and the blade is easy to maintain. Perfect for backyard cutting or the dojo and with a blade worthy of remounting as a long term project, the value for money on these swords and quality for the price cannot be beaten.
