Setsudan -"Cutting" Series - Batto Swords
The Setsudan katana is of classic style, form and function. Our katana's have been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. This line is the first choice for cutting practitioners of all levels looking for a no-frills no-nonsense performance oriented sword.
The Setsudan's 5160 Carbon Steel blade is heat treated and makes for a high degree of toughness and resilience. In addition to improving the properties for a tough blade steel that will withstand abusive applications, hold an edge well and sharpen easily.
5160 is essentially a simple spring steel with chromium added for hardness. Often used for swords (hardened in the low 50s Rc) because of its toughness, and is also used for hard use knives and tomahawks (hardened up near the 60s Rc).
Swords made from spring steel have a reputation for durability – though like any blade they are not indestructible – and while rare, they can be broken or damaged.
