Buyer's Guide to Katana Swords


Katana SwordsRonin with a katana in hand.
Katanas date as far back as the early 1400s. The Samurai class of feudal Japan wore Katana swords. But, only the noblest military men held the title of Samurai and carried the katana sword, which could be drawn to strike an enemy in a single motion. The moderately curved, slender blade of the katana was single-edged and the long grip would accommodate two hands. Modern day katanas are most often made in this traditional Japanese design. BudK offers many katana swords with unique twists on the traditional katana. Of all the swords offered at BudK, our katana selection will definitely get your attention.
