Shipping usually takes around 12-18 days to most countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. In some cases bad weather and also the pre-Christmas rush can delay shipping around 1-2 weeks. We’ll provide a tracking number when your sword ships that you’ll be able to track.
The blade attains its sharp edge during the polishing process, with the final stages of fine stone polishing. Our swords are made with a traditional niku edge by default, meaning the cutting edge side of the blade is convex, slightly rounded for maximum durability. Traditionally, Japanese swords are made with niku so the samurai’s blade could retain it’s cutting edge even after cutting through his enemy’s bones and clashing against iron armor.

This katana is just amazing!!! First of all it came super fast and very secure! Attention to every detail is also amazing! Super sharp!!! Very happy with the purchase !!!!
The prices on the website being in USD despite being from ‘satoswordaustralia.com.au’ site kinda threw me off during checkout (assumed it was AUD) however sword was shipped to VIC without issues (some Covid delays) and quality surpassed expectations.
First of all, let me say: “thank you” my new sword is perfect in every way. Make sure you are very clear as to how you want your blade made. I wanted mine with no blood groove and there was some confusion as to this. There is a 48 hour delay between e-mails and little time to correct things, so I thought my sword was being shipped with blood grooves. I am happy to say it was not. It was shipped with no Hi and is exactly as pictured. This is one well made, sharp as a razor katana! You couldn’t go wrong if it were twice the money. Shipping is fast too. Arrived18 days from ordering.
Thank you Sato Swords!
I am very happy with the sword well made and sharp.
Love the sword and came quickly and will buy again
