HIGH QUALITY HANDMADE ZATOICHI JAPANESE NINJA SWORD CLAY TEMPER BLADE
This Ninjato sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. The blade of the sword has been constructed from 1095 High Carbon steel in a Maru style. In accordance with Japanese tradition, the blade has been treated with a clay covering, applied to the entire sword except the cutting edge. The blade is heated and quenched in spring water. 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. 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 Chu-Kissaki(long length). The blade comes with long HI on each side this not only allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung, but also can balance the blade to achieve optimal performance. This Ninja sword has no tsuba(guard), the Habaki (blade collar) is a one piece brass construction. This sword comes with a hexagonal tsuka(handle) and Saya(scabbard) which are made of African rosered wood, and the tang is double pinned with bamboo mekugi. The saya has buffalo horn Koiguchi and kojiri.
