Blade Material

Custom Blade Gallery, check here for a better view of the blade options.

The blade is the most important part for your custom katana.
 We have Carbon steel, Manganese Steel, Spring Steel,Pattern Steel & T10 Steel in different color and pattern for your selection.

Carbon (1060) & Manganese steel are the basic options, in compare, Carbon steel is a bit harder, Manganese steel is more flexible.

Spring steel is most flexible and will even bounce back even you bent the blade hard intentionally. That makes it the safest steel for heavy cutting and Tameshigiri because it’s less likely to break.

For cutting, especially for those new to katanas, we recommend the Unokubi zukuri spring steel blade. This blade is nimble and easy to control.

Pattern steel, also known as Damascus steel, is combination of different steel to create eye catching patterns on the blade, its also hard.

T10 Steel is hard with high carbon content. All T10 steel blade are clay tempered, with true hamon line.

Aesthetic Blade Series:

Katana’s aesthetic value outweighs it’s functional value in many cases. Refining the sword can take even longer than forging one. In this collection we offer hand polished blades with various color, texture and hamon line, you can use for your custom katana. 

Bo-Hi (Blood groove) 

Bo-Hi, also known as blood groove, fuller. What it does is to reduce the weight.

Saya helps protect your blade from rusting and accident scratch or damage. it's also an integral part of the elegant katana design. We offer wide range of katana saya designs to fit your custom katana design. Including solid color, mixed color, auspicious arts or luxury lacquer design.

The Ito & Sageo

Ito is the wrapping on the handle, Sageo is the cord that is used to keep the scabbard on your belt. We offer cotton and PU leather material in various color options. 

Our standard Ito wrapping is tight and secure, with the diamonds appearing fairly even.

For an even better gripping experience, we offer Hishigami (菱紙) wrapping. This traditional method involves placing small pieces of paper inside the Ito, further reinforcing it and enhancing its appearance. Hishigami wrapping provides a tighter Ito and more evenly spaced diamonds. Due to its time-consuming nature, this option costs an additional $30 and requires an extra 3-5 days to complete.


We used real ray skin samegawa (panel, not full wrapped) for all our custom katana. Real ray skin provides better gripping experience, it's more expensive at our cost, but it's worth. Our standard samegawa provides sufficient grip for the Ito.

For enhanced grip and comfort, we also offer a full-wrap ray skin samegawa. This option is available for an additional $40.

Blade Engraving

You can engrave the name of an important person, a number, a short phrase, or anything that means a lot to you. We provide free Chinese or Japanese translation service. For graphic, please send by email.

Blade: You can have it sharp, extra sharp, or even reversed blade.

Engraving: Other than name engraving, we can also engrave graphic designs on your katana blade. Auspicious patterns like dragon, demon are most popular choices.

Saya: We can fully customize the saya for you. You can print some graphic on it, or add craving designs, or lacquer art.  

If you are interested in a fully customized katana, please send your requirements to, we will discuss the requirements with you, and give you the final quote. Depends on how complex the requirements are, we will need deposit to start making the sword, and in some cases, even an advance fee to finalize the quote. For example if you want to customize a katana but you don’t know how to create a 3D file, we need to hire someone to do that, so we can make an accurate quote based on the 3D design.

Customization at this level is very time consuming, a higher price and longer lead time (at least 1 month) is expected.

We can’t replicate fantasy swords at the moment, most of them are not designed for actual use, our focus is on functional swords only.
