KATANA are liberated from the role of arms in this peaceful world. Currently, KATANA is made as “Amulets or swords for self-defense” that is used “to train the spirit of the holders and to exorcise the evil”, but KATANA do not lose the beauty as arms. Kanemasa believes “Only sharp KATANA can exorcise the evil” and “The sharpness itself is the beauty of KATANA.”

The material for KATANA is domestically produced by Tatara method, the old and traditional way to reduce iron, and shaped into KATANA with Shihouzume process or the best manufacturing technique in Japan.
