Sword Cleaning Kit Description


Looking after your Samurai Sword or Katana is important. Without proper regular maintenance, the blade will rust. Cleaning and maintained every 3 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.


This is 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 or Blade Oil – For applying to the blade
  • Cotton Cleaning cloth
  • Small storage container for storing used oiled cloth
  • Rice Paper- to clean oil from blade as well as polishing and spreading oil on blade


Instructions for using your Sword Cleaning Kit


This is very brief set of instructions so it might be worth doing a bit more research before you do it for real.

  • Use the rice paper to remove any previous oil
  • Tap Powder along the length of the blade
  • 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


Contents of the Sword Cleaning Kit Box


  • Blade oil
  • Oiling cloth
  • Powder ball for blade polishing
  • Brass awl and hammer
  • Small storage container

Shipping your Sword Cleaning Kit

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you. 


We can send your item(s) in the following ways:


Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS. 


UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that. 


UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:


  • Europe: 2-3 working days
  • USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand: 3-4 working days
  • All other destinations: 4-7 working days.
