Hand Forged 1060 High Carbon Black Steel Blade Full Tang Samurai Katana Sword
This Katana sword is hand forged and hand sharpened using Japanese methods to create the perfect blade for iaido and kenjutsu use. The blade is heat-treated, tempered, and oil quenched to achieve optimal levels of flexibility and hardness. The blade is then hand polished with multiple grades of sharpening stones. After sharpening, the blade is etched with an oxidation process to give the surface it's black color. It comes with a black and red lacquered hard wood saya and silk sageo/ito, solid alloy fittings, and genuine same (rayskin). The full tang is secured into the handle with two bamboo mekugi. It is a very good choice for Dojo students, gifts, cutting practice, and display. The sword is durable enough for tameshigiri and bamboo. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications vary slightly from sword to sword.
