Legal and Illegal Goods
Samurai and other curved Swords
On April 6th 2008 a law came into effect banning samurai and other curved swords with a blade length of 50 cm or more; there are some exceptions for registered martial artists, re-enactors and even certain genuine Japanese swords.
An amendment to this act was passed, which came into effect on the 1st of August 2008. It allows curved and samurai swords which are handmade using traditional forging/production methods to be sold without a license.
Traditional Elements in Our Samurai Swords
We produce using the Marugitae 丸鍛えtechnique that has been highly admired and respected globally since it was developed.
This is simply the strongest material you can get fr samurai swords and it does not come cheap. If you buy a carbon steel blade i t is very important that you keep it protected from air (oil will provide a barrier) as it may rust if left in contact with oxygen. All carbon steel blades are delivered oiled.
This is about how the blade is attached to the handle. A full tang is where the blade runs the full length of the sword and the handle is literally bolted onto the blade. This makes the sword much stronger: almost all functional or 'Battle-Ready' pieces have a full or traditional tang (full tang is a term that would not be applied to all sword types).
