Japanese Swords

Called “Nihonto”, genuine Japanese Swords are expensive. If your’e interested in buying one be prepared to spend at least $300 and up. You can also find some very decent quality replicas of Japanese Swords. As a guide expect to pay at least $100 for a quality replica, anything under this price is going to be ornamental only. Three things to look out for when buying the most basic cutting Katana are
1. The blade should be made from tempered carbon steel.
2.The blade should extend all the way into the handle. This full tang construction ensures strength and balance through the blade.
3.Ideally the weight should be around the 3 pound mark.
