Are tamahagane katanas the best katanas?

Answer:

“Tamahagane” refers to the type of steel that is traditionally used to make katanas and it is known as some of the most high quality steel produced in the world. It is illegal to export raw tamahagane steel from Japan and it is only produced three times a year by the most skilled steel producers in the country. Traditional tamahagane katanas are renowned as being the best katanas, and the prices for traditionally produced katanas can range into the tens of thousands of dollars.
