The katana is one of the iconic bladed weapons of Japan, typically wielded by warriors known as samurai. Traditional Japanese katana possess a single-edged, curved blade that took days or even weeks to construct. The forging process was considered a sacred art.

These ornate Japanese swords often display elegant tsuba, or sword guards, and menuki ornaments bound within the wrapped cord of their handles. Most of our Japanese shirasaya and collectible katana at Medieval Collectibles come with a scabbard to prevent damage or dullness of the blade. We carry an amazing range of beautiful samurai katana crafted by some of the top manufacturers from around the world.
