A REAL KATANA!
The Warrior Series swords share the same high-performance 1060 steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their Emperor counterparts, but we have omitted their expensive mirror polishing in favor of a more practical finish. This makes the Warrior Series a perfect choice for training and perfecting cutting techniques (Tameshigiri) without damaging or tarnishing the blade.
The Japanese swords of the Emperor Series have proven, since their initial introduction almost five years ago, to be quite popular with many of our customers. Still, we are aware that there are some people who want a battle ready sword but hope to find one at a more affordable price. Our Warrior Series addresses this problem directly. In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on our Emperor Swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish. The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Emperor counterparts. Like the Emperor swords, they have Same covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you’re in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you’ll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a BLACK LACQUERED SCABBARD and a BLUE/VIOLET COVER BAG.
The intricate, Japanese warrior-inspired detail work is impressive.
Creative cutlery company Cold Steel’s ever-popular Warrior Series swords are delicately-designed, durably-crafted blades with the same steel, heat treatment, and remarkably keened blades as the company’s more expensive Emperor Series. Like the Emperor swords, they boast Samé-covered, cord-wrapped handles and quality fittings, and additionally come complete with a black lacquered scabbard and soft blue cover bag.
