Battle ready Swords and Weapons, also known as Real swords or functional swords are made and constructed to do the job they were intended for. But what does battle ready mean? Battle ready swords have a few attributes that decorative swords do not. A real sword is usually full tang, tempered, high carbon steel and is made in a way that it will not fall apart when used as intended. Just because a sword is real does not mean it is indestructible. A real sword is meant for self defense against a human or for cutting approved targets such as tameshigiri mats. Not cars, trees and bushes. We have one of the largest selections of real swords for sale anywhere.
