Sword Cleaning Kit Description

Looking after your Samurai Sword or Katana is super important. Without proper regular maintenance, the blade will rust even in the scabbard on the wall. Cleaning and maintained every couple of months or so will keep you blade in perfect condition. It will also need to be done every time someone touches the blade as the oils in the skin will corrode the metal. If left too long the damage will be irreversible. Many people sword owner love the process of cleaning their sword, it's a time to chill out and be in touch with your Katana.


This is a traditional Japanese Sword Cleaning Kit , so you can maintain your sword the way they have always been maintained. Anyone who owns a Katana needs to have one of these. Included in the wooden box is:

- Mekugi-nuki or Brass Awl and Hammer - to remove the wooden / bamboo pins in the hilt. (Only do this if you are confident with what you’re doing)

- Uchiko ball or Powder Ball – for applying powder to the ball

- Sword oil spray bottle – For applying oil easily to the blade (Spray Bottle is empty)

- Cotton Cleaning cloth

- Replacement Wooden pegs

- Rub the powder lightly to polish the blade

- Add a few drops of oil along each side of the blade

- Use more rice paper to evenly distribute the oil
