Katana metals

Just curious, I'd like to have a katana that I could actually use without fear of it breaking and I'm wondering what kind of metal would be durable enough to, for example, block a strike.

*I just want to point out that I have no intention of doing this to a katana, I'd just like to have a good sword that I could practice with.

I know that stainless steel isn't so great but I really have no idea what was used back in the day or what's preferrable now. Can anyone suggest anything?
