There are a few key aspects that you should know about before you dish out your money, especially if you plan to buy over the internet. Unfortunately, there are many websites claiming to that certain swords are can be used for cutting exercises in the dojo.
The main trait of a quality sword that you need to look for is to be sure that the blade is forged high carbon steel and preferably differentially tempered.
Differentially tempered means that the back of the blade is not as hard as the edge of the blade. At first some people think that this is not a positive aspect for a high-quality sword.
