Japanese Sword SAMURAI KATANA CLAY TEMPERED BLADE FULL TANG
This Katana sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. The blade was made of 1095 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru style. 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 from the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). The blade has long Hi (blood groove) 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. The tip of the blade is a KAMASU-Kissaki (straight). This sword is hand sharpened and hand polished, it is very sharp. High quality brass dragon design Tsuba(guard) with one piece brass habaki(blade collar), and two seppas(spacer) secure the tsuba. The Fuchi(sleeve) and Kashira(buttcap) are also made of brass. The tsuka-ito is coffee color with alternating cross over the green real ray skin samegawa, and two dragon design copper menuki on the handle. The tang is double pinned with bamboo mekugi. The hard wooden SAYA(sheath) has been green high gloss lacquered with speckle. The saya has buffalo horn koiguchi, and thick brown silk sageo tied over a buffalo horn kurikata with bright copper shitodome. This is a sharpened, super, truly battle ready Samurai sword very suitable for iaido and kendo superior. It is also allows you to make a collection of realistic, yet beautiful samurai sword, or to present one to your friend. Don't miss such a chance!
