Fully Hand Forged Damascus Steel Clay Tempered Blade Flying Dragon Koshirae KATANA Japanese Samurai Sword
This Katana sword is made of Damascus Steel with a polished mirror-like surface. It is a very strong blade made with traditional methods for multiple applications. The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities. The blade has been folded 13 times with 8192 layers, and a special clay is 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 is also result of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). The blade comes with full tang and long HI on each side, and it has been hand polished with multiple grade sharpen stone by Japanese method, which made the surface of the blade like a mirror. The sword comes with Dragon Koshirae. High quality brass dragon design Tsuba(guard) with one piece brass habaki(blade collar), and two seppas(spacer) secure the tsuba.The Fuchi(sleeve) and Kashira(buttcap) are made of brass. The tsuka-ito is purplish red with alternating cross over the white real ray skin samegawa, and two dragon design menuki on the handle. The tang is double pinned with bamboo mekugi. The katana comes with a hard wood saya(sheath) with black&red threadiness finished. Puplish black&red thick synthetic Sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. the Koiguchi has been hardened.
