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. The blade also features a kissake, hamon, and comes with a thin edge already sharpened. The sword is full tang, fully functional, and sharp. It can be used for drills, practice and test cutting.
Saya (scabbard): The Saya has been constructed from hardwood with a white lacquered finish. A blue leather 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 Japanese handmade tsuba has been constructed of iron with scrollwork design
Tsuka (handle): The Tsuka core is wooden with white ray skin samegawa wrapped over the wood. A synthetic blue leather 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 alloy and match the design of the Tsuba.
