The earliest swords were developed and made of bronze during the Bronze Age about 1600 BC. During the Iron Age, the sword remained fairly short and later evolved during the Middle Ages into the cross guard sword we are so familiar with today. Swords and edged weapons were also being forged in Asia and an early version of the katana was recorded as early as 900 A.D. Today swords range from premium stainless steel with razor-sharp blades, to beautiful Damascus steel Katana swords that are almost museum quality. At BUDK.com we stock more swords than any where else on the internet. From fantasy swords, to medieval swords, and battle ready and functional swords. Don't forget to read our Brief History of Swords page.

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. For info on care and maintenance of your katana or Samurai sword, visit our Sword Care page.

Practice Swords

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.

  • Sean Stone (Austin, TX) - Secret Agent Sword

    I bought this as one of the first swords for my collection, and i was extremely pleased. I’ve had it for years now and it has yet to show any signs that it isn’t brand new. It has a good size, length, and weight to it. I don’t use it to clear brush or anything, just to sit in my room and look cool, or maybe kill a scorpion every now and then. Overall one of the best purchases I’ve made, well worth the cheap price of 13$! I recommend!

    Review of: Secret Agent Tactical Ninja Sword

  • Alan Thompson (Burnet, TX) - Simply Beautiful!

    This sword is a value above value! It is flawless. I bought it because it’s a Shinwa blade, and I knew the blade would be a very fine one. It was, and then some!, but so was the rest of the sword. The sword is heavy and requires more than average strength to use it effectively. I just like showing it off mostly, because I like watching the faces of the beholders. It is a very beautiful sword.

  • Mike (Lafayette, LA) - My guests go WOW!

    I purchased my sword from Bud K when it was first offered. Shipping was on time and packaging was good. Very impressive item. Solid and looks awesome hanging on the wall. Everyone wants to handle it. The sword was way sharp enough right out the box. Bud K remains my favorite knife and sword purchasing site. Thanks.

  • Janice Scott (Carrollton, GA) - Simply Beautiful

    I’ve collected a lot of swords over the years , some just visual and some for pure fun, but this sword truly pulled me in and I have to say out of the twenty something weapons I own this is the first one I wont let other people touch and just cant stop looking at it, I even threw in some extra money to purchase a cleaning kit and a sword display. This sword is one of my most priced possessions now. The blade is beyond beautiful and was everything I hoped for and more.

    Review of: Shinwa Black Nodachi Ninja Damascus Steel Sword

  • Kolean (Lordsburg, NM) - Excellent Katana

    This is my favorite Katana thus far. Excellent quality and very cool look. Shinwa is a professional brand and delivers excellent quality swords for very reasonable prices. This sword could easily cost a lot more, but it is great that anyone can get such great quality for this price. Be careful with storing your Katana in high humidity areas, the wood scabbard will swell and it will be VERY difficult to take out the Katana. I had a very difficult time when that happened to me. All in All, if your looking for a COOL- FUNCTIONAL- EXCELLENT QUALITY- then get this.
