Tough and Resistant Blade for Cutting Practice
T10 steel that this Katana uses is also known as Tool Steel. Its Chinese designation is High Speed Steel which is for an alloy made of Tungsten and Carbon.
The steel has a high tenor of carbon unlike other types. Its Tungsten content makes the T10 steel more resistant to scratches. This is also very tough steel which makes it suitable for swords.
Folded and Clay Tempered
Since the steel of this sword has undergone the folding process, it produces subtle Hada. These are grains on the surface of the blade that enhances the sword’s artistic value, you can read more about the steel types and processes in this link.
It has a clay tempered edge so the Katana can retain a razor sharp edge. Its spine is left soft so it can bend when in use. This is done via the classic clay coating tempering method.
