Imperial Forge


Keeping with Japanese traditions our Imperial Sword Collection is crafted using only traditional materials and fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel) are expertly made and finely crafted from black iron. The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of polished brass and each tsuka (handle) is covered in ray skin and tightly wrapped in the traditional cross over style ito (braid). It takes time to produce folded blades of this quality and this is why our Imperial Sword Collection is more difficult to acquire. It is best to order or reserve your blade as soon as possible as we do not always have full availability in stock. We take great pride in the quality and performance of or swords, we will not compromise this quality and/or performance just to sell more swords.
