This T10 katana features a Forge Folded T10 blade with a traditional geometry. 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 very sharp.
The balance of the blade is perfect and the sword is completely functional. It can be used for drills, practice and cutting tests.
This katana features a handmade Japanese brass Musashi ring Tsuba with matching brass fuchi kashira, black Japanese crest lacquered saya, black ray skin samegawa tsuka, full tang with 2 mekugi pegs.
