Katana for Tameshigiri
Esta Kurayami katana features a Forge Folded Clay Tempered blade (folded 13 times creating 8192 layers). It has been forged from differentially hardened T10 with a wavy hamon. The design of the Katana has been inspired by the swords of the Japanese Warring States period. Swords from this period were designed to cut through armor and thus needed to have a strong, reinforced edge.
This blade features medium Niku along the Shinogiji of the blade allowing for heavier and harder cutting. The Niku keeps the blade thicker so the cuts will not be as swift and clean as a light cutter, but the the Ha will keep its cutting edge longer. The sword is appropriate for heavy Tameshigiri with tatami and bamboo.
The tip of the blade is a Chu Kissaki (medium length) with a Kaeri-Asashi temper line. The blade is full tang and sharp.
The balance of the blade is perfect and the sword is completely functional. It can be used for drills, practice or test cutting.
This katana features a handmade Japanese brass Tsuba with a Japanese dragon on it. The fuchi and kashira are also made of brass. Black lacquered saya, white authentic ray skin samegawa tsuka, full tang secured by 2 bamboo mekugi pins.
