Things to consider before buying Samurai Katanas

First of all, watch out for the pattern on the outer edges of the Katana’s blade. That shows the heat treatment the Samurai Katana has gone through, believe it or not, the heat treating makes all the difference.

Secondly, check if your Samurai Katana is perfectly balanced. This may seem obvious but it is common for the Samurai community to be carried away by the aesthetics.

Thirdly, do check out for the aesthetics. Ironically, functionality is not enough. Make sure that very inch of the Katana has been polished to bring in harmony.

Fourthly, ensure that the design is authentically and historically correct. If not, keep it back. The modern sword makers shouldn’t compromise on the feudal design, whatsoever.
