Hand Forged Full Tang Blade Clay Tempered HAZUYA Polished Japanese Samurai Sword Katana
This katana is well-crafted by hanbon forge. It has been full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened. The full tang blade is made with very tough 1095 high carbon steel. The steel has been throughly refined and tempered, 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 in the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). The blade was polished by HAZUYA which is a very thin Uchigumori stone fixed with paper, Hazuya is a specific stone to bring up hamon, the stone is very fine and soft against the steel. The work is done to get mirror-like surface on shinogi-ji and edge. Well-crafted crane design brass tsuba(guard) with one piece brass made habaki(blade collar).
