This hand forged katana has a folded,
differentially heat treated /clay tempered 1095 blade.
With the blade being cooled at different rates this allows for a softer core to absorb impact but harder cutting edge for better edge retention.
Tsuba is made of iron.
The wooden handle is wrapped in genuine Stingray skin (Samekawa)
before the traditional silk handle wrapping (Tsukamaki).
The saya (sheath) is inlayed with mother of pearl and the fittings are buffalo horn.
The sageo (or ‘ito’)  which is the material wrapped around the saya is made of black silk.
The katana is supplied with a wooden storage box, silk sleeve, cleaning kit and piano finish display stand.
