High Carbon Katana Samurai Swords - More Info

Katana are the most well-known of all the Samurai swords.  Our High-Carbon Katana for sale are authentically hand-forged, made in the traditional ways dating back centuries.  Take home a reminder of history.

What "High Carbon" Means

All of our katana swords are either 1045, 1065 or 1095 carbon steel, which is considered high carbon.  The last two digits refers to the carbon content, 1045 equals 0.45% carbon content, 1065 equals 0.65% carbon content and lastly 1095 equals 0.95% carbon content.  The higher the carbon content, the harder the resulting steel will be and the longer the blade will hold the edge.
