During the feudal period of Japan, the katana had been utilized for battles countless of times. Even if their prime had occurred thousands of years in the past, a lot of people still want to have their own katanas.
The reason why this katana blade is worth investing in is that its not only fully functional, but it also exudes strength and beauty. It is sharpened to perfection, making it excellent for cutting practice and training.
This is a katana that weighs 1.60 kilograms. It is made lighter by the bohi which is present on this blade. The bohi is also referred to as the fuller or blood groove, though it doesnt have anything to do with blood. It keeps the sword lightweight and easier to wield. However, this does not compromise the strength or performance of the sword.
The tsuka is 27 centimeters long which lets you grip the sword with one or two hands. Lastly, its blade is 72 centimeters long and 3.2 centimeters wide. It is sharpened adequately and made suitable for cutting soft to medium targets.
1060 for Practice Cutting
This blade is made from 1060 steel which has a 0.60% carbon content. It is the most basic steel and is seen on most entry level swords. Since it is sharpened, this katana can be used for practice and training sessions.
The katana is also a full tang piece. With that, the katanas tang extends through the entire tsukas length. This makes the blade and tsuka a single piece, thus, turning it into a more solid and rigid sword. Create Your Custom Samurai Sword

All of the fittings of this sword are made of metal. The fittings include the tsuba that protects your hand from injuries, the fuchi & kashira which are the pommel and collar. The menuki, on the other hand, are the ornaments beneath the ito.
The black silk ito or tsuka-ito literally means handle wrap or cord. It is designed to reinforce the tsuka and prevent any instances of technical issues. The white samegawa readily protects the tsuka and prevents your hand from sweating. The samegawa also helps you properly grip the blade during training.
