You are looking at a high quality fully functional Japanese Shirasaya Ninjato sword. The blade is made from T10 steel. This high quality full tang double pegged katana exhibits one of the most appealing Hamon temper lines that is authentic and distinct as a result of traditional Clay Tempering Processes.
The blade has been constructed from differentially hardened T10 with a wavy hamon. The tip has a Kiriha Zukuri Triangle shape. The Kissaki is medium with a well defined Yokote. The blade comes full tang and sharpened. Forged from T10 steel, the tempered blade provides the correct weight and balance needed for the rigors of repetitive drawing and sword motion practice. Each blade has a deeply cut groove (bo-hi) to provide audible feedback when swung properly.
Blade: The blade of the Shirasaya sword has been hand made with T10 Steel. The Carbon has been hammered throughout the blade so that it has a universal hardness throughout the entire blade. A bloodline 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, a thin edge already sharpened. It can be used for drills, practice and test cutting (please see cutting test at the bottom of this auction).
Saya (scabbard): The scabbard has been constructed from high quality rosewood with a natural finish. When the sword is sheathed the handle and saya appear to be one solid piece.
Tsuka (handle): The Tsuka core is also made from the same rosewood and it is secured by two mekugi pins.
