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.

Can anyone suggest anything?
Hello Owen,

Check this place for a 'usable' sword:

If you want how to actually use one, you might want to look into taking a Shinkendo class.
