45" Traditional Hand Forged Japanese Samurai Naginata Sword Clay Tempered Full Tang Blade
This japanese samurai sword Naginata has been hand polished by hanbon forge. The full tang blade is made of 1095 high carbon steel and it has been laminated in a Maru style with a clay temper line. A special clay was applied to the blade by hand, using a thin covering near the edge and a thicker layer over the rest of the blade. This results in a relatively quicker cooling of the edge during quenching, producing a hard edge and softer back. The beautiful real hamon on the blade was also result from the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). The blade comes with full tang and a O-kissaki. This blade has a shape in "Unokubi-Zukuri" style, there are two Hi on each side, one is longer and shallow which is from habaki to kissaki, one is shorter and deep which is from habaki to the middle of the blade, this not only allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung. but also can balance the blade to achieve optimal performance. The fine finished square design alloy tsuba(guard) comes with one piece brass habaki(blade collar), and two copper Seppas(spacer) secure the tsuba of the sword. The fuchi(sleeve) and kashira(buttcap) are also made of alloy. The Tsuka(handle) has red genuine samegawa ray skin with black chemical fiber ito which is tightly wrapped in katate-maki method, the tsuka has two bamboo mekugi pinned and two menuki(ornament) decorated. The Saya(sheath) has been constructed from hard wood with black&red high gloss finished. The thick black&red synthetic sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. The Koiguchi has been hardened. This beautiful sword is well-crafted and well-assembled, it is a good choice for Dojo students, gifts, and display. The user does not have to worry so much about the sword bending or taking a set from a bad cut, especially on hard or thick dense targets.
