This is a massive size Japanese sword. We call it Nodachi. Overall length is 120cm. The sword is hand forged and made of 9260 Spring Steel. The blade has been tempered and water quenched. It has a razor sharp edge that is capable of cutting 3 bamboos in a strike. The 9260 is a silicon alloy which has a significantly increased fatigue resistance compared to standard carbon steel. It 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.
This Nodachi features a black leather tsukamaki, authentic purple ray skin samegawa, black iron tsuba, metal alloy fuchi, kashira, and brassmenuki. A high value genuine Japanese battle ready Nodachi sword. Each side of the guard is secured by a bronze spacer (Seppa), this fitting is only found on hand crafted swords. A sword bag is included.
