ART SHOULD HURT

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?'..)

This particular piece is understated - blue fittings with a stunning decorated tsuba and Geisha print under the lacquer makes it look like a much more expensive sword than it actually is and because of this, has been sold by many unscrupulous sellers at ridiculous prices claiming 9260 blade with iron fittings and hand painted saya - and charging accordingly.

All in all, it's just a great looking piece - and is functional enough for some good old fashioned light backyard cutting (water filled bottles, soft wood saplings, light bamboo, etc) in fact a well tempered 1045 carbon steel blade is often passed off as 1060, 9260 or whatever is the 'super steel' of the month because it's stronger than you might think. If you weren't told they were mass produced, it could be all to easy for unscrupulous sellers to present these swords to you at considerably higher prices (we have seen the exact same swords for sale on Amazon for $125 plus shipping - most charge $100 or more!).

Great value no matter which way you look at it - sword art priced so that ANYONE can afford it.
