Kendo, Iaido, or Ninjitsu, among other martial arts, include training with edged weapons. Functional training katanas are reproductions created with specifications similar to real katanas. Depending on the quality of the reproduction, the greater the similarity with the original edge, the hardness of the counter-blade, the ductility, the balance and the lightness.

The hardness of metals and alloys is measured by the Rockwell hardness test. A katana forged from steel that yields values between 30 and 40 on the Rockwell scale is a functional weapon, but will be dented if it hits the edge of swords with harder steel.

Steels with Rockwell hardness between 40 and 45 are suitable for a basic katana, and the hardness level of 60 is perfect for cutting training katanas.

This is the highest world authority dedicated to preserving the art of forging and preserving Japanese swords.

These are functional katanas with carbon steel blades, suitable for practice and built with modern technology. The steel is inferior in terms of performance to that of the Katanas forged and tempered according to the traditional method. In any case, they are shock-resistant and can be safely wielded for practice.

These functional katanas are often built in a semi-craft way, according to ancient methods, and with modern steels that did not exist in the Japanese Middle Ages. Their performance is high, although it has never been possible to forge a modern reproduction with the quality of the historical specimens of the legendary masters of the 14th century.

These swords are the historical originals and their value and quality varies greatly depending on the period of the invoice, the state of conservation and the master forger. These Katanas, with history behind them, have a special charm that previous ones lack.

Nihonto: Japanese Combat or Training Katanas

Nihonto: Japanese Combat or Training Katanas

It is well known if it is understood imperfectly. You will notice that I use the term "nihonto", which literally translates as "Japanese sword". This refers to the general category of Japanese swords, rather than a specific style, such as the katana.

While the more obvious physical characteristics of the nihonto have not changed over many centuries (moderately curved, two and a half hand to two hand / tsuka grip), there were dramatic changes in the purpose and form of use over this period, changing from primary use to foot, to mounted combat, and vice versa.

From fighting lightly armored opponents, then heavily armored samurai, to unarmored fences Changes in forging and changes in access to imported minerals and pre-processed steels of various natures and qualities also changed the nature and quality of the leaves produced.
