This is a sword and we believe in quality over quantity. swords are hand-made, fully functional, and "battle ready" katanas. They are best suited for practice in all sword arts, completion cutting, and collecting. The Japanese Katanas, hand-made by lyuesword, are of the highest quality. lyuesword has been produced Japanese swords for professional collectors and practitioners of Iaido, Iaijutsu, and Kenjutsu for over 10 years!

The blade is made of folded steel and has folded 14 times to create the 8192 layers to increase the flexibility.It brings out the subtler patterns and intricacies of the folded steel.The process is labor-intensive and time consuming.but the results are extremely attractive and unmatched by any mechanized polishing methods.
The polishing can reveal a lot about the structural quality of the steel and the tempering process employed to harden the cutting edge.This step can be an art on to itself.Lyuesword polished this onein a way which gave a high mirror-finish to the softer back portion(Ji) of the blade and a whiter,more "abrasive" look, to the flat section(shinogi). onsteel which has been differentially tempered,the pattern left by the clay used can be clearly seen. we can see it along the entire length of the blade,extending all the way to the tip.

The handle(tsuka)  is made of hard wood and wrapped with a silk ito over white ray skin.
The scabbard(saya) is also made iron wrapped around leather.
The tsuba on katana is made of alloy and decorated with a different relief on each side.

The sword is a fully functional Japanese katana and not a replica, it is considered a weapon and it is extremely sharp. This sword can easily sever a 7" thick bamboo with single stroke. The katana can be completely disassembled for full Maintenance.
