A wonderful katana in every way

A wonderful katana in every way

Thanks Paul Southren, this Kaza Katana is everything I had imagined. Who needs a $1,000.00 sword???? I hate wall hangers in firearms and cutlery. This Katana is a modern version and I believe has superior steel than most of the ancients.


It has traditional same ray skin, the kissaki (point of the sword) is well defined, the mune (back of the blade) has a nice custom looking double angle to it, the hamon is there but subtle, the double mekugi is smart and safe, and the ito (handle blade) is wrapped tight and well done.

I just wish Paul Chen would make a naginata like this sword! Hint, hint! My hats off to Paul Southren, helping us sword users and buyers. Finally we have a real friend that will tell us the truth about these blades. The sword replica industry is going bonkers in production of swords of all kinds and qualities. Selecting a sword (unseen) is to risky for me. And it is great to have Paul on my side and not afraid of telling it like it is. Very soon I hope to have more of these 9260 katanas and that Oniyuri Bujinkan Katana just might be the next one.

Definitely not a wall hanger...

Hi Stever,

Thanks for your comments. I definitely feel that for the money, there is no other real Katana that comes close.

Interesting to see how different people perceive the natural hamon. It is reasonably clearly defined, but perhaps not what people are used to when they see the fake acid etched or wire brushed ones. But with a hybrid polish, you'd be surprised just how prominent it can be - the 9260 steel LOVES being clayed. :-)

Thanks again,

- Paul
