The Tiger Elite Katana has been re-designed from kissaki to kashira. Utilizing a hand forged and folded Performance Series katana blade and some of the finest fittings available, the Tiger is equally at home as a cutting blade or showpiece. The K120C powder steel blade is differentially tempered using the traditional claying method which produces a HRC60 edge and HRC40 back. This allows for superior edge holding and cutting ability while allowing the blade to absorb the shock of a blow. The hamon (temper line) and hada (folding pattern) are very prominent. The koshirae (fittings) are all made from blackened bronze and detailed in gold. The tsuba (guard) is made from blackened iron with a ‘stalking tiger’ motif. The same is of the finest ray skin while the tsuka-ito (handle wrap) and sageo (scabbard cord) are made from top-quality japanese cotton. The Tiger is supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.

    This is a great sword with incredible cutting ability and great balance while i swing the sword! Highly recommand this sword even though some people might think it is expensive. But again, you get far more what you get in this price!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    Great blade, amazing detail. The weight, everything is nice. Its worth it to have something nice if you already have a cutter. This sword is almost too nice to use. Cheap ain’t good and good ain’t cheap, so don’t be cheap.
