In the Japanese language "katana" is the word for sword; specifically, the sword of a samurai (an ancient Japanese warrior). The Japanese skill of sharpening katana was developed over a period of 1,000 years during the period of Japan's history when samurai ruled the nation.

Kyota Takahashi, master sharpener and president of Katana Edge, has acquired unique and superior sharpening skills by undergoing rigorous training in Japan with a company that has practiced the mystery of katana sharpening for hundreds of years.

It is believed that all who possess "katana" will embody mystical powers. Now, you have the opportunity to revive this mystical power through the precise and highly skilled sharpening of your shear blades. You will experience the spirit of the samurai in your styling.
