1095 High Carbon Steel Clay Tempered Unokubi Zukuri Double Edge Samurai Katana Sword
This Kogarasu Maru (Little Crow) sword is made of 1095 high carbon steel, clay tempered with a polished mirror-like surface. It is a very unique sword made in the style of unokubi-zukuri with two sharp edges. The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities. The clay temper process combines the characters of toughness and flexibility and results in a genuine hamon (temper line) on both edges. The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The sword comes with a high quality rosewood saya with buffalo horn caps, silk sageo/ito, genuine same' (rayskin) and copper fittings. It is a very good choice for dojo and iaido use, gifts, cutting practice, display, and collection. It is durable enough for tameshigiri, bamboo, bones, and iron wire.
