How much does an authentic samurai sword cost?

I am not talking about a mass-produced one, but one that is made in the traditional way, by expert swordmasters.

Beleve it or not, Samurai swords can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. This isn't for special historical ones, but for brand new ones. The reason is that a couple dozen people can be involved in the production, and it can take 6 months to make a single sword!

Authentic Samurai swords are made by forging process followed by heat treatment that is hardening and tempering. Material is carbon steel. Authentic samurai swords are quite expensive. Battle-ready Samurai swords could cost about $200-300 but may reach $1000 for better quality swords. Custom-made functional Samurai swords are priced at $15000-$50000.

It actually depends on the sword maker or the products used for the sword. If you want a very good katana which can chop down like everything, you need at least 3000$ for it. Do not ever buy one from e bay, contact a dojo master personally. Dojo masters should know well because every dojo has at least have one.

The authentic samurai swords can cost as much as $30,000. These are the ones not mass produced. There are cheaper ones but they are not one of a kind. If you are a professional you can tell the difference between the authentic one and the mass produced. Beware of counterfeit.

if you're asking here, you probably can't afford one. but the battle-ready mass-produced ones are still usually fold-forged and very nice if you spend a few hundred.
