This samurai sword set offers great quality at a reasonable price. Featuring our hand forged and polished 1060 carbon steel blade, designed for optimal balance and handling. This is a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. Our steel blades have been designed from the ground up, to offer perfect balance for regular Iaido & Kenjutsu use. After sharpening, the blade is etched with an oxidation process to give the surface it's black color. The swords come equipped with a black and red lacquered hardwood saya, silk sageo/ito, alloy fittings, genuine same' (rayskin) and silk wrapped tsuka (handle). The swords are well assembled and the ito wrapping is tight and even. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications may vary slightly.
