Yorozu Series 2018 – Great Wave XI Katana

Our Yorozu Series Katana from Superior Steel are the best economical cutting swords we offer. Handmade by artisan blacksmiths, using quality high carbon steel. They offer a very rigid and stiff blade on par with Japanese Military Katana.

There are no grooves in our Yorozu Series blades, thus maximum blade strength is retained. This traditional groove-less “shinogi-zukuri” profile offers less drag when target cutting. A perfect economical cutting sword able to slice through bamboo with ease.
