The 1060 Blade
This samurai katana has a 1060 blade. It has a 0.60% carbon content and is sharpened to be used for practice cutting. It is the most basic type of steel and is seen in most entry level swords. Since it is fully functional, this samurai katana is also suited for practice cutting on soft to medium targets.
This is also a full tang sword. With that, its tang extends to the tsukas entire length so the sword has a good amount of rigidity to it. This also makes the blade and tsuka a single piece of metal which is stronger and sturdier for cutting.
This katana has a beautiful tsuka. It is wrapped in white samegawa that works to protect this area. It also controls the sweating of your hand, allowing you to grip this katana properly. The samegawa is also wrapped in a red silk ito. It is also called the tsuka-ito which means handle cord or wrapping. The main purpose of the ito is both functional and aesthetic. For function, it reinforces the tsuka and avoids technical issues from occurring.
The Chinese Scrollwork Saya
Aside from its strength and durability as a functional sword, this katana also exhibits its beauty through the saya. Its saya features a Chinese scrollwork design that adds to its artistic value. Aside from this, it also safeguards the blade of the katana. It prevents damages on the blade caused by environmental factors like dirt, dust, rust, etc. For more protection, a silk sword bag is also included.
