This Katana sword 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 gloss blue and golden line finish. A purple 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 brass tsuba has been constructed of brass with horse design
Tsuka (handle): The Tsuka core is wooden with authentic white ray skin samegawa wrapped over the wood. A synthetic purple 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 brass and match the design of the Tsuba.
