You are looking at a fully functional Japanese spring steel katana. The blade is handmade from 9260 Silicon Alloy Spring Steel. This type of blade has more lateral strength and is easier for Tameshigiri (bamboo/mat cutting) from the weight and the reduced drag.

The 9260 is a silicon alloy which has a significantly increased fatigue resistance compared to standard carbon steel. The addition of 2% silicon changes the behaviour of the steel drastically for use in a katana. The spring steel blade is most commonly seen in application on fencing foils where it needs to withstand a high degree of bend and still be able to return to center.

The balance of the blade is perfect and the sword is completely functional and very sharp. It can be used for drills, practice and cutting tests.

The silver lacquered Saya is made of high quality hardwood. The handmade copper tsuba features a Japanese eagle design. This sword is a excellent sword for training (perfectly suitable for Tameshigiri) and it is also a beautiful piece of art work that can used as display at home or office.
