T10 Steel, Clay Tempering, & Hadori Polish
T10 steel is among the favored materials used for creating swords. It is a top choice since it is steel classified among the strongest, finest, and most tenacious. T10 steel can also be referred to as tool steel.
With contemporary steel, the process of folding works differently. This is in comparison to folding classic steel. It does not enhance the firmness or the efficiency of the Katana. Its presence is mainly for artistic value. This is because folding produces subtle grains or Hada on the blade’s surface.
This Katana has a blade that has gone through clay tempering. It leaves the sword’s spine flexible while the edge is left very sharp. Aside from clay tempering, this sword is also Hadori polished. This makes the Hamon line look better and more attractive.
For a distinct look, the blade of this Katana has been dyed with a purple acid dye, giving it a more eye-catching appearance. Aside from its unique aspect, its blade is fully sharpened, making it functional.
As a full tang, this Katana is generally a single piece of solid steel. This makes it tougher and more resistant to the challenges faced in training.
Different materials are present in the creation of the Katana sword’s fittings. The material for the Tsuba is brass, while HQ copper is for the Menuki, Kashira, and the Fuchi.
The Kashira and Fuchi are the pommel and handle collar. Both of these function by covering and supporting the Tsuka. The difference is that the Fuchi focuses on the upper part, while the Kashira on the lower part of the Tsuka.
The Menuki are decorative fittings, and its patterns are generally real pieces of art.
The Tsuka and its Support
The Tsuka is fully protected by a synthetic silver leather Tsuka Ito that augments the Tsuka. It also aims to prevent any technical failure when the Katana is being used. Leather is a good material and it is pretty durable. It has a tight hold of the Tsuka which is great.
Along with the Ito is a black Samegawa. It wraps and safeguards the Tsuka and is generally designed to prevent sweating of the hands. This will let you have a proper and firmer grip on the Katana, avoiding any instances of slips.
