- Keeps swords looking good as new.
- Boxed set of traditional cleaning instruments
A katana is made out of carbonsteel. You must clean your katana to prevent it from rusting. You must do this after tameshigiri (cutting exercises) or after you have used it in the dojo. Also if you have touched the blade, it is adviced to clean your sword. Otherwise you might get rust fingerprints.
If you clean your sword, use the proper tools. You don't want to risk your sword being damaged. What you need is different for a quick cleaning and for a more intensive cleaning. A traditional maintenance kit contains everything that you need.
