With its clay tempered edge, this Katana has, and can retain a razor sharp edge (can be selected during checkout). Its spine is softer so it can bend witout breaking when used.
Also, this Katana has undergone the Hadori polishing. This makes the Hamon of the Katana look shinier and more attractive. The main purpose of this polish is to make up the blade’s aesthetics.
The Tsuka – Its Fittings, Wraps, and Design
The Tsuka comes with a collection of fittings made from different materials. Its Tsuba is a piece crafted from iron, while the Menuki, Kashira, and the Fuchi are all made from metal.
The handle of the Katana is covered with a black rayskin Samegawa. It is a part of the sword that is underneath the authentic black leather Ito or Tsuka Ito.
This Katana features a high end Saya with full seashell patterns. It also has authentic buffalo horn to increase its aesthetic quality. The Saya is generally a scabbard. It protects this Katana, especially its blade, when stored for display.
There are other uses to this, like making it easier to draw the sword during practice or cutting sessions. For those who wear and attach the sword on their belt, the Saya works as a support for the blade.
It is also great that there is an inclusion of a silk sword bag with this Katana.
