Thaitsuki is owned and run by the Sivarat family who has been making Japanese Katanas for over 400 years. They are descendants of a Samurai family stationed in Thailand in 1590.
The Sivarat family was one of the few that where chosen to forge Japanese Katanas for the Samurai warriors. For the past 400 years they have continued perfecting their skills of forging Japanese swords for private collectors and martial artists throughout Japan.
From the perfectly wrapped Ito, to the handmade Kashira, Menuki, Tsuba and Fuchi, each piece is made from skilled craftsmen that specialize and take pride in their art. The Habaki, Menuki, Fuchi and Kashira are handmade from quality silver. The Tsuka is skilkefuly wrapped with only the leather or silk and only genuine Ray skin is used. The Saya is crafted from hard wood then carefully lacquered and the Koiguchi is made from genuine black horn.
Each Japanese Katana comes with it's own individual serial number and certificate from Thaitsuki Nihonto so you can trace it back to when and by whom it was made. Each katana is handmade and the fittings are handcrafted so no katana will be ever be exactly alike. Each katana is it's own, one of a kind, work of art.
