Blade Material

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.


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.

Bo-Hi (Blood groove) 

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

If you are interested in a fully customized katana, please send your requirements to hello@romanceofmen.com, 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.
