CS88BKW: Warrior Series | Katana
Cold Steel

The Japanese swords of the Emperor Series have proven, since their initial introduction almost five years ago, to be quite popular with many of our customers. Still, we are aware that there are some people who want a battle ready sword but hope to find one at a more affordable price. Our Warrior Series addresses this problem directly. In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on our Emperor Swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish.

The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Emperor counterparts. Like the Emperor swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you're in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you'll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a BLACK LACQUERED SCABBARD and a BLUE/VIOLET COVER BAG.

Simply Nice
This was given to me as a present a few years ago. It’s not flashy or expensive looking, however it is exactly what I was hoping for in a Katana; sharp, solid blade with an ability to take a pounding if needed. You have to keep it well-oiled and the sheath sticks a bit when extracting the blade. Bottom line is its’ well worth the price and everything you would want in a personal defence blade.

Working Sword
Love the fact that it comes with a cloth bag. At first I said 'Where's the edge?' then I found it with my finger. . . ouch. Pricing is appropriate for the fact that it lacks the mirror polish, but I will be getting the Emperor sword to alleviate that. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a katana to swing around without having to worry too much about its welfare. It sticks a little though, when fully sheathed. Samurai make it look too easy to pull out and butcher people with.
