High Quality Japanese Samurai Sword KATANA CLAY TEMPERED FULL TANG BLADE
This Katana sword is hand forged using Japanese methods to create the perfect blade for iaido and kenjutsu use. The blade was 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 of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). This blade has a shape in "Unokubi-Zukuri" style, There is one big Hi on each side which is from Habaki to the middle of the blade, The thickness on the back becomes thinner from the half of the blade towards the tip, but the back turns to thick near the KISSAKI (tip). This not only allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung. but also can balance the blade to achieve optimal performance. This blade has been hand polished with multiple grade sharpen stone by Japanese method, which made the surface of the blade like a mirror.The tip of the blade is a O-Kissaki (long length), it is well defined with the hamon going all the way through the Boshi. The Tsuba (guard) of the sword is made of iron. The Habaki (blade collar) is a one piece brass construction. Two Seppas (spacer) secure the Tsuba. The Tsuka (handle) core is wooden and it is tightly wrapped over green genuine Ray skin Samegawa with coffee synthetic silk Ito. The Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) are made of iron. The Tang of the sword is secured by two Mekugi(peg). Gold colored Menuki (ornament) are on each side of the Tsuka. The saya (sheath) of the sword is hard wooden with green high gloss finished. Coffee synthetic Sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. The Koiguchi has been hardened. This sword is a very good choice for Dojo students, gifts, practice, and display.
