The Samurai Katana is the strongest and best performing Japanese style blade
ever offered at this price. The use of Swedish powdered steel, used in the construction of these shinogi zukuri katana, results in outstanding
quality and performance. Strength, edge holding, and beauty have all been significantly enhanced by the use of this steel along
with the complex folding process. The thicker, robust blade with ample niku ("meat") evidences a gunome style hamon and a dramatic ayasugi-hada with mokume and masame.
The tsuba is steel and engraved with a Samurai drawing his sword.
The fuchi and kashira also feature Samurai drawing and cutting engraved in
them. The forging process for this sword can be seen on our website. Each of
these blades is individually hand forged and folded, heat treated, and mounted.
Even with these design parameters each sword is unique. Performance testing
has shown them to be strong cutting blades with a good resistance to deflection.
James cut cleanly through a 12 mat roll at the Bugei Open House with the Samurai
style blade. The nakago are 10 inches with two mekugi. This provides for strength
and safety while cutting. These swords are also available with 11 inch up to
15 inch tsuka . The saya and the silk tsuka ito are black.
General Blade Specifications (remember each sword is hand forged so there is always minor variation): Motohaba is 1 1/4 inch, Sakihaba is 1 inch, Torisori
is 7/8 inch, Hamon is in Gyaku Choji style, and the kissaki is 1 3/4 inches.

Most sword vendors sell the same generic swords as every other vendor. Bugei Trading, however, felt that swords should be designed by experienced swordsmen and sword craftsmen to ensure they would meet higher standards of functionality as well as historical accuracy. To this end Bugei provides unprecedented selection in terms of tsuka (handle) length and nagasa (sword length) for our customers, something you just don't find anywhere else. We recognize that our customers are serious about their swords and may need a very specific configuration in their sword. Sometimes a generic sword just isn't good enough. Since we offer such a variety of configuration options for each sword in our exclusive line it is possible we will be sold out of some configurations.
If we do not have a specific sword you ordered in stock and available for immediate delivery we will contact you by phone or e-mail to discuss your options. Many customers find that while we may be out of stock of one particular item, we may have another configuration that could meet their needs. So if you are somewhat flexible, be sure to ask about what we might have in stock or on special.
Of course if you have your heart set on a specific sword with a specific configuration we will make sure the factory knows to make an additional sword ASAP to fill your order. We order new stock on a regular basis throughout the year. If we do not have the sword you need in stock we will take a $500 deposit to reserve a sword in an upcoming order specifically for you. The balance will not be billed until your sword is here, inspected and ready to ship to you.
