This Ninjato was hand forged and crafted authentically in all aspects of its creation. All the fittings and parts are genuine material. The blade has great balance. It is completely functional and can be completely disassembled for full maintenance.
Blade: The blade of the sword has been hand made with High Carbon 1060 Steel. The Carbon has been hammered throughout the blade so that it has a universal hardness throughout the entire blade. A blade groove has been added to the top of the blades to decrease the weight of the blades and give audible feedback when swung. The blade also features a kissake, hamon, and comes with a thin edge already sharpened. The sword is full tang, fully functional, and razor sharp. It can be used for drills, practice and test cutting.
Saya (scabbard): The Saya has been constructed from hardwood with a lacquered finish. A silk Sageo has been tied around the bright copper Kurigata.
Tsuba (hand guard): The Habaki is a one piece brass construction over a brass Seppa. The small tsuba has been constructed of metal alloy with a flower design.
Tsuka (handle): The Tsuka core is wooden with white ray skin samegawa wrapped over the wood. A silk Ito has been wrapped over the Samegawa. Two bamboo Mekugi secure the tang in the Tsuka. The Menuki, Fuchi and Kashira are all made from alloy metal and match the design of the Tsuba.
