Wanna Be a Samurai?

Anyone who’s ever seen a samurai film spends the rest of the night lying in bed, wishing for their very own samurai sword. We’ve all had dreams where we’re limber ninjas, jumping from roof to roof, sliding undetected behind an unsuspecting target. I mean, that’s the dream, isn’t it? A life of danger and excitement? Then we wake up and simply wobble to the bathroom to start our day.

We sit in our cubicle or desk, daydreaming about slicing through Oren Ishii’s gang, The Crazy 88, like Uma Thurman in Quentin Tarantino’s incredible film Kill Bill. We think back to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and wonder if maybe we trained really hard, perhaps we could hop on bamboo stalks like they did. We imagine decapitating hordes of zombies with our katanas, like that lady on The Walking Dead. No? Just me? Oh…

Let’s face it, every good action film has a samurai sword in there somewhere. They are used as sophisticated and stylish weapons against everything from vampires, to zombies, to enemies against whom we seek revenge. Pretty much any evil, undead, corrupt, oppressive, bad thing out there. And with good reason! They’re awesome.

What if I said there’s a place where you can get the katana of your dreams? A place where they not only sell beautiful display pieces, but battle-ready, handmade amazingness that will surely come in handy when the zombies finally attack. This place exists, and you’re reading its blog right now.

Heavenly Swords has dozens of gorgeous swords for anyone looking to start, or expand their collection. With new products coming in every day, you are guaranteed to find what you’re looking for. Here are a few of my favorites:

Dragon Guardian Samurai Sword w/ White Ito 

The intricate dragon detail on the handle is what got my attention. This beauty is 41” long, with a battle ready blade made form 1045 carbon steel. Those zombies are going down!

Gold Jintachi Japanese Samurai Swords

This one is perfect for someone just starting a collection. It’s not only a stunning showpiece, but it comes equipped with a 26” stainless steel blade. The scabbard, or saya, has a gold plated finish, and the handle features a gorgeous antiqued detail.

Gold Spiral Dragon Katana

What put this sword over the top for me are the 7” stiletto and the 7 ½” knife that fit neatly into the scabbard. So you have extra protection if you need to fight off multiple undead at once. The red snakeskin-style handle matches the red scabbard… just so pretty.

Musha Hand Hond Razor Sharp Samurai Sword Set with Stand

For those of us who do not play games. This is a hand forged, razor sharp sword set. Each blade is made of 1045 carbon steel glimmering in the sunlight, my friend. The hard, deep blue scabbard has a lacquered high gloss finish, and the stand compliments it beautifully. Display these in a prominent place, and know you’ll always have some deadly weapons ready if you ever need to defend yourself against The Crazy 88.
