Japanese Samurai Sword WAKIZASHI Unokubi-Zukuri Full Tang Clay tempered Blade
This WAKIZASHI is well-crafted by hanbon forge. It has been full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened. Full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened. The blade of the sword has been hand crafted from 1095 high carbon steel. The carbon has been hand hammered throughout the blade to give the blade a consistent hardness. A special clay was 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 was also result of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering).This blade has a shape in "Unokubi-Zukuri" style, there are two Hi(blood groove) on each side, one is longer and shallow which is from habaki to kissaki, one is shorter and deep which is from habaki to the middle of the blade, This not only allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung, but also can balance the blade to achieve optimal performance. 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 blade is also very sharp. The tip of the blade is a O-Kissaki (long length), it is well defined with the hamon going all the way through the Boshi. The Iron musashi design Tsuba begins with a brass one piece Habaki. Two copper Seppas secure the blade of the sword. The tsuka(handle) of this Wakizashi is made of hard wood with white real ray skin and green synthetic tsuka-ito wrapped. Two gold colored menuki on the hande. This sword comes with a deep red&speckle finished Saya(sheath), and the green synthetic sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. The Koiguchi has been hardened. It is a very good choice for Dojo students, gifts, cutting practice, and display. It is durable enough for cutting tameshigiri and bamboo.
