Sword Fittings and Measurements
This katana sword weighs a total of 1.57 kilograms. Its tsuka is 27 centimeters while the blade is 72 centimeters long and 3.2 centimeters wide.
There are metal fittings available and these include the tsuba, kashira, fuchi, and menuki. The tsuba is this katanas handguard. Just like its description, it mainly protects your hand from an opposing blade. The kashira works for proper balance while the fuchi conceals the tsukas opening. As for the menuki, these are the decorative ornaments beneath the tsuka-ito.
This blade is made from sharpened 1060 steel. It has a carbon content of 0.60% and is best used for cutting soft and medium objects. It also features a bohi. This is also called the fuller or blood groove even if it isnt connected to blood. The bohi helps this katana feel lighter and faster, making it easier to swing while practicing.
The bohi also gives you a great tachi kaze. This is the sword wind sound that reverberates when this katana is swung. Also, the bohis form helps lessen the loss of durability while also working as an I-beam. Create Your Custom Samurai Sword

Durable and Functional
Being a full tang is what makes this katana durable and functional. This is due to the extended tang reaching through the tsukas entire length. If you want to build a great collection of blades, its best to focus on full tang katanas like this.
The Ito, Samegawa and the Saya
The tsuka is the handle of this katana. It is covered with a white samegawa and a black silk ito. The samegawa is a protective material that keeps your hand from sweating. It also helps you grip the sword appropriately while practice cutting. The ito is commonly known as the tsuka-ito. It literally means handle cord or wrap. It has an aesthetic purpose and a functional purpose which prevents technical failure from occurring. Also, it reinforces the tsuka to ensure its stability.
The black and white leopard skin saya brings out the beauty of this katana blade. It increases its artistic value but also has its own function. The saya is a sheath protecting the blade especially when storing it for display. Also, a silk sword bag is present. You can use this to carry the sword during practice in the dojo.
