About The Katana
Japanese Katana were first made to be worn and used in battle by the Samurai class in feudal Japan. Katana are traditionally a long, single-edge sword with a square or round guard and a handle long enough for two hands.

Honshu Boshin Wakizashi Sword
Practice swords were traditionally made of wood so swordsmen could train in the art of combat without the risk of injuring their opponents. Today, most practice swords are constructed of polypropylene that is weighted more like a forged steel sword. BUDK.com has a large selection of practice swords in polypropylene, wood and even hard foam."
