Japanese KATANA SAURAMI SWORD 1060 STEEL HIGH CARBON STEEL OIL QUENCHED BLADE
This katana sword is hand-forged from 1060 high carbon steel with grooves (bo-hi) on both sides of the blade, providing a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung. The tsuba is a round blackened alloy tsuba with a tree and fisher theme, while the Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) are made of alloy with a dragonfly theme. The Tsuka (handle) core is wooden, tightly wrapped over genuine Ray skin Samegawa with synthetic silk Ito, and adorned with two copper Menuki (ornaments) on each side. The Tang of the sword is secured by two bamboo Mekugi (pegs). The SAYA (sheath) is hard wooden with a black high gloss finish, and the Sageo (cord) is tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. The Koiguchi (scabbard mouth) has been hardened. This katana is ideal for iaido and kendo, and is suitable for a collection or as a gift.
