The Measurements + The Bohi
The blade of this katana is 72 centimeters long and 3.2 centimeters wide. The tsuka is about 27 centimeters while its overall weight is 1.59 kilograms. Although weighed adequately, the sword feels lighter because of the bohi.

A Solid and Durable Tang

To increase its artistic value, the blade is also dyed in purple acid. Complementing this is the katanas saya made from synthetic leather with skull patterns.
Aside from its physical beauty, the sayas main purpose is to protect the blade. This is most needed when the sword wont be used for a couple of days.
The tsuba, menuki, fuchi, and kashira are the fittings of this sword. They are all made of metal which is a rigid and long-lasting material. The material used makes for excellent sword fittings.
When it comes to the tsuka, it is covered and protected by a fine white samegawa. This prevents your hand from sweating while also protecting the tsuka. It allows for proper handling of this katana during practice. A brown silk ito also wraps around the samegawa. It helps prevent technical failure and also reinforces the tsuka.
Additionally, this katana sword comes with a silk sword bag. Its to keep the blade or used for carrying it to the dojo.
