9260 spring steel contains 0.60% carbon, allowing the blade to bend, twist, and return to its original form. An advantage of this Katana is that its 9260 steel-made blade has high shock absorption, making it an excellent compromise between hardness and flexibility.
Full tang weapons are a must, no matter if youre a sword collector or martial arts practitioner. This type of sword is more durable and solid while having a perfect rigidity to its blade.
The Bohi and Sword Fittings
The Bohi is generally a swords blood groove. It is a necessary element to make this Katana quicker, easier to wield, and more lightweight.
This sword also comes with fittings which are the Kashira, Fuchi, and the Tsuba. All these are made from HQ Copper. These fittings are vital to the Katana to ensure protection and balance when being used.
Tsuka, Tsuka Ito, and Samegawa
The Tsuka is generally the Katanas handle. It is protected by a white Tsuka Ito and a yellow Samegawa. The Tsuka Ito is important to prevent any kind of technical failure when the sword is being used. This also provides you with a better grip on the sword.
As for the Samegawa, it protects and wraps around the Tsuka. Though it works to safeguard this area, its primary function is to keep your hands from sweating while the Katana is in use.
Aside from these, the Samegawa prevents slippage, so you wont have to worry about your hand sliding over the Tsuka while practicing.
Not only is this Katana functional, but it displays aesthetic beauty and charm. It comes with a beautiful white lacquered Saya made of hardwood.
The Saya sheaths and protects the swords blade. Considering that its made from hardwood adds more security to the weapon. It will help prevent damages or scratches from appearing on the blade, and it can also make it easier for you to draw the sword while training.
Additionally, a silk sword bag is included with this Katana.
