This KATANA is hand forged and hand sharpened using Japanese methods to create the perfect blade. Fully functional and battle ready. This work of art is hand made in our forge and sent directly to you.
The blade is made of High Carbon Steel that has been hammered down and folded on top of itself 13 times for 8192 layers. This evens out the carbon content and creates a stunning wave pattern on the blade. The beautiful red color of the blade is created with electroplating and extends sword maintenance intervals up to 6 months.
The blade is Full Tang which greatly increases the strength of the sword. It is strong enough to cut through a thick bamboo tree with a single strike yet sharp enough to slice paper. The sword has been hand polished and sharpened which creates a mirror surface.
This is a sharpened battle ready Samurai sword very suitable for iaido and kendo superior. It would also make a beautiful gift for a friend or loved one.

Thank you so much!! I bought the Handmade Japanese Samurai Sword Katana Folded Steel Red Dragon for my partner andwe were absolutely thrilled with it!!! It was beautifully made and designed and you can tell it had so much care put in to it! Even the bag and packaging had care with it! We are beyond impressed! I would highly recommend buying for him!
The sword is amazing. Thank you.
The sword is great. I love the Damascus blade pattern and the fittings are excellent. Expect more business from me in the future.
Eric was incredibly helpful and informative with updates throughout the process. I am very pleased with the sword. It is beautiful work and I love it!
Absolutely amazing. Nothing loose, pushed my thumb against anything that could move and everything is solid. Saya was a little tight (could not release with just my thumb) but it was easily fixed with 60 seconds of light sanding.
Eric your customer service is the best I've seen. The katana is sharp and beautiful. Thanks again - Patrick
The katana has exceeded my expectations. The handcraft of the sword is amazing! All my friends and family love it.
Took several pictures settled on that lol. Love it and the design I'm in love with it. Opening it was a pain having styrofoam all over my floor.
This sword is beautiful. I like the weight and it's sharp.
This sword is no toy! It feels solid in my hands and the edge is sharp. The blade is stunning and the engraving is perfect, I will be returning for another sword.
It's beautiful. Honestly one of the best looking blades I've seen in a long time.
Very bad-ass. Amazing craftsmanship, built to last.
Love it, beautiful.
Great product and could not be happier with Eric who has helped me tremendously throughout this sale. There was a mistake with the Tsuba I ordered and Eric had a completely new sword forged for me! By far, the best customer service i have experienced and the sword is unbelievable!
My fiance loved this! Came super early too!
Took about 2 weeks to get but well worth the wait. The balance and beauty of this sword is amazing.
My sword is a beautiful work of art. It is everything I wanted to remind of my recent holiday in Japan.
Two of the best blades I've ever owned. Functional, super sharp, well balanced, exquisite handling. Designing a custom sword to be made for me soon. Outstanding craftsmanship all around!
Contacted Wicked Blades for a special gift for our son, a soon-to-be First Degree Black Belt. Our son has also recently become very interested in the actual skill of sword making, and the Hand Forged Red Dragon Katana fit the bill perfectly - so beautiful and foreboding! What a fantastic piece of art, we can't wait to give the gift! Big thanks to Eric who walked us through the whole process, especially engraving, which was a HUGE plus! Great experience and thrilled with the product!
I received my first sword this afternoon. Twelve days from ordering to collection. To say I am delighted is an understatement . Exceptional craftsmanship. Truly a work of art and very sharp. Many thanks to Eric at wicked blades. Regards. Nick.
The sword is a masterpiece the blade is amazing the whole look and style is breath taking. This is the best sword I’ve got my hands on yet and I use to work at a blacksmith where we would go through hundreds of swords a week.
Hard steel and was doubtful of the red coat but cut heeeeps of bamboo and not a mark, a worthy zombie assasinator, not razor but a little bit of a touch up n look out. Worth it
The sword made it here faster than expected and it was in beautiful condition perfect bag I can't be happier with the product
Love it fast service packaged very well Top service, I'd buy from them again 10/10.
Loved the sword, looks really good on display! Very happy with it and would definitely buy more from your store.
As soon as I saw the sword online I knew that was the one .As when you buy anything online I felt a little uneasy spending hundreds on an item I haven't actually seen.I was emailed every step of the way and told when it was shipped. Shipping time was shorter than expected and when it arrived I opened the sword which was packed with great care and was amazed at how beautifully made it was. I can't wait to see my son unwrapping it on Xmas day and can't recommend wicked blades enough to anyone looking to purchase a quality sword .
Nice sword will great in my display, thanks.
Excellent product for a very affordable price.
I have been looking around for a while to get a custom Katana. Most places were sold out or had incredibly long wait times. Then I found Wicked Blades. Very easy to place an order and I could order right away. I also had several questions and they were answered very quickly. I didn't have to wait very long for the katana to be made either. I got to see pictures of the finished product before it was shipped. I was very impressed with the look. When I got the sword and was able to hold it in my hands and look at it in person I was so impressed. Every aspect of the sword looked amazing. The blade was the most impressive of all though. 1095 carbon steel with real clay tempered hamon line. It looks so perfect I almost don't want to cut with it. I am very happy with my purchase and I would definitely buy from again. I would also recommend this site to anyone else looking for a custom Katana.
All one can say is thank you from my heart. What truly outstanding craftsmanship. Wicked Blades has my full respect! -Justin
Excellent quality weapon! Was amazed at the craftsmanship of this katana and the customer service. Did not expect to have photos of the katana sent to me once it was completed before it was ready to ship. Received it quickly and it may in fact be the most beautifully crafted one in my collection. I will be purchasing additional blades through Wicked Blades in the future!
The sword is a good blade and well put together - fit and finish is solid and the balance is good. The blade is sharp and the handle is very tight. Overall this sword is better than those I have owned costing three to four times more. Great experience with a very good master sword maker! - Mark
Outstanding! Perfect blade profile to go through most anything. Strong and sharp. Great value for money!
This is my second sword from Wicked Blades. Great Value, genuine ray skin wrapped ,bamboo pegged handle, Quality steel, very well done polished Damascus blade, I also got mine engraved. UNBELIEVABLE!
