HIGH QUALITY JAPANESE SAMURAI SWORD KATANA SNAKE KOSHIRAE CLAY TEMPERED FULL TANG BLADE
This Katana 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. 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 been hand polished with multiple grade sharpen stone by Japanese method, which made the surface of the blade like a mirror. This blade has no bo-hi to enhance its strength and power. The tip of the blade is a Chu Kissaki (medium length). The Tsuba (guard) of the sword is made of brass with Snake design. The Habaki (blade collar) is a one piece brass construction. Two Seppas (spacer) secure the Tsuba. The Tsuka (handle) core is wooden and it is tightly wrapped over white genuine Ray skin Samegawa with coffee color synthetic silk Ito. The Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) are also made of brass. The Full Tang of the sword is secured by two Mekugi (peg) . Copper snack Menuki (ornament) are on each side of the Tsuka. The saya (sheath) of the sword is made of natural hualee wood. Coffee synthetic Sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. the Koiguchi has been hardened. The koiguchi and kojiri are made from buffalo horn. This is a truly Samurai sword very suitable for iaido and kendo superior.
