Authentic Real Forged, Functional "Battle Ready Swords"

All the swords found in our functional swords section are real swords that are properly forged, tempered and made like the originals. They come in many different types for art forms like Tameshigiri, Iaito, Tai Chi, Kung Fu and WEMA. They are also suited for stage productions and fight choreography. These swords are classified as “battle ready swords” however, we use the term “functional swords” interchangeably.
