The nodachi blade is long. It has a measurement of 88 centimeters long and is 3.2 centimeters wide. The tsuka is long as well, measuring at 30 centimeters. This makes gripping the sword with both hands, easier. Its heavier than the usual katana. It weighs a total of 2.18 kilograms but appears lighter because of the bohi.
9260 Spring Steel
This nodachi is crafted from 9260 spring steel. It contains 1% carbon, making it very flexible. This type of steel allows the weapon to bend, twist, and return to its original state. 9260 steel also has increased shock absorption. Its also an excellent compromise between hardness and flexibility.
The Full Tang Sharpness
This nodachi is also sharpened. It makes the sword ready for cutting training. The nodachi is also a full tang piece. It means that the tang and tsuka are one solid, sturdy, and strong piece of metal. This is because the blade extends towards the whole tsuka.
A fill tang also gives this blade a level of rigidity. So, youll definitely enjoy this piece for training.
The Nodachis Ito and Samegawa
This nodachi comes with a silver samegawa. It wraps and protects the tsuka, also keeping your hands dry from sweat. The samegawa also allows for proper gripping of the blade. This also aids in preventing your hand from sliding over the tsuka.
The black and red ito also wraps around the tsuka. It has an aesthetic purpose and a functional one too. For function, the ito reinforces the area, preventing technical failure from occurring.
Sword Fittings and Aesthetics
The nodachi consists of fittings which include the tsuba, kashira, menuki, and fuchi. All of these are crafted from copper, except for the menuki which are made of metal. The tsuba is the handguard to protect your hand while the kashira is designed for balance. For the fuchi, it is a cap-type collar that covers the tsukas opening. The menuki are the ornaments under the tsuka-ito.
The nodachi comes with a black lacquered hardwood saya. It protects the nodachis blade when stored for display. You also get a silk sword bag that can be used to carry the sword.
