This sword is made of 1095 high carbon steel, clay tempered with a polished mirror-like surface. It is a very strong sword made with traditional methods, for multiple applications. 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). The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The sword comes with an african rosewood shirasaya style handle and saya with buffalo horn. The tang is secured with two mekugi and features a mei (signature). This sword 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.

a:2:{s:7:"content";s:1053:"I recently ordered this item for training and I was really pleased with the overall look and feel of the sword. it felt weighty but not too heavy and good in the hand. But there were a few reasons why I ended up returning it and these things I hope Swords of Northshire can improve on as I was overall very impressed with their service. \r\n1 The blade did not come very sharp despite choosing the hand sharpen option.\r\n2 There were gaps between the handle wood and the horn bolsters which could effect the handle\'s longevity. \r\n3 Most importantly the handle was secured far too tight, so tight that I was certain that if I forced it off I would damage the sword. \r\n\r\nI recommend anyone buying a sword without a Tsuba to ask for a spacer so they can at least use it as a cushion for the bare wood of the Tsuka when removing the handle.\r\n\r\nI would also like to add that Sword of Northshire\'s customer service went above and beyond and Bryce was happy to talk me through every step of the process and ultimately do what I believed was best.
