This katana is handmade using Japanese methods to create the perfect sword.
The blade is meticulously hammered into shape in one solid piece with the full tang extending into the handle.
The steel is hardened with heat treatment and oil quenching. Once the blade is formed, it is hand sharpened and polished to a mirror finish.
The blade is made from High Carbon Steel that has been folded on top of itself 13 times for 8192 layers. This evens out the carbon content and creates a beautiful wave pattern on the blade. It has a long Hi (blood groove) on each side.
This allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung. It also balances the sword to achieve optimal performance.
This samurai sword katana is perfect for martial arts and collectors. It would also make a beautiful gift for a friend or loved one.

Thank you, the dragonfly sword is beautiful, nice work! As a woodworker I have an affinity for well crafted items, especially nice pieces of metal with a sharp edge. - Andrew Miller
The "Dragonfly" was purchased as a gift for a friend. He is a judge and absolutely loved it. Since the katana is battle ready, he purchased a lockable case and displayed it up high in his office so that people will not be able to easily access it. He is a "warrior" type of a guy and was totally blown away by the swords excellent make. The gift made him very happy. That makes me very happy.
All one can say is thank you from my heart. What truly outstanding craftsmanship. Wicked Swords has my full respect! -Justin
