This Katana 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 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. A flying dragon symbol is engraved onto the bottom end of the blade.
The blade also features a kissake, hamon, and comes with a edge already sharpened. The sword is full tang, fully functional, and sharp. It can be used for drills, practice or target cutting (tamashigiri)
Saya (scabbard): The Saya has been constructed from hardwood with a black lacquered finish. A red 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. This katana has a Japanese handmade blossom tsuba. An additional Seppa rests behind the Tsuba to secure the tang of the sword in the Tsuka.
Tsuka (handle): The Tsuka core is wooden with white ray skin samegawa. A red 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 metal and match the design of the Tsuba.
