Kogarasu Maru Hand Forged Folded Steel Double Edge Blade Samurai Sword Little Crow Katana
This is a well-made folded steel Katana with a very unique design. The blade style is unokubi-zukuri, with two sharp edges. The blade is very sharp and folded 13 times resulting in over 8,000 layers. It comes with a black lacquered and painted hardwood saya, silk sageo/ito, iron fittings, and genuine same (rayskin). The tang is secured into the handle with two bamboo mekugi and features a hand engraved Mei(signature). It is a very good choice for Dojo students, gifts, cutting practice, and display. It is durable enough for cutting tameshigiri and bamboo. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications vary slightly from sword to sword.
