Roronoa Zoro's Shusui Sword from One Piece - Folded 1095 High Carbon Steel Katana
This is a well-made and carefully constructed clay tempered & folded 1095 high carbon steel Katana, made to look like Roronoa Zoro's Shusui Sword from One Piece. The visible undulating grain pattern on the blade is a result from folding the steel 13 times during forging. The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities, and the blade is treated with an etching process that makes the spine black with a red cutting edge. The clay temper process combines the characters of toughness and flexibility and results in a genuine hamon (temper line). It comes with a black lacquered hard wood saya with custom paintings, dark blue silk ito, and high quality brass fittings. 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.
