This Japanese Samurai Sword Katana is made of damascus folded steel. The blade has been repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities, it has been folded 13 times with 8192 layers. The clay temper process combines the characters of toughness and flexibility and results in a genuine hamon (temper line). The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The combination of the quenching and the clay cover creates a significant temperature difference in the Ha of the blade and the rest of the sword. The hamon is authentic all the way up to the tip. The blade has no long Hi (blood groove) on each side, but a chu-kissaki on the top. The Habaki is a single piece brass construction fitted over a copper Seppa. The Tsuba itself is iron with wheel design. Another Seppa secures the Tsuba to the Tsuka of the sword. The Tsuka is wood laid over the tang of the blade. Wrapped over the wood is a white ray skin Same, and the tsuka-ito is black leather mixed synthetic silk, wrapped over the white ray skin. Two bamboo mekugi secures the tang to the Tsuka. A blacked iron menuki is found on each side of the handle. The saya(sheath) of the sword is hard wood with a black&white high gloss finished. Thick Black&white synthetic Sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. the Koiguchi has been hardened. This is a sharpened, super, truly battle ready Samurai sword very suitable for iaido and kendo superior.
