The katana always had a symbolic meaning. It was also well used as a weapon of war during Japans feudal period. A lot of these are highly appraised which is why the katana is most appreciated today.
If you are someone whos into collecting swords, then adding this fully functional katana is a great investment. It isnt only great for practice and training, but it also exudes beauty and charm.
This sword weighs 1.65 kilograms which is adequate for wielding and practice. It has a blade measuring 72 centimeters long and 3.2 centimeters wide while its tsuka is 27 centimeters long. It is adequate for gripping, allowing you to shift from single to double-handed use.
The Katanas Steel
Its blade is made from folded, clay tempered T10 steel. This steel contains 1% carbon and has 62 HRC hardness for its edge. It is a suitable blade for most target cutting, practicing on objects like tree branches, bamboo, and tatami mats. Since its steel is folded, youll find subtle hada on the katanas surface. This doesnt affect the performance or strength of the blade, it only adds to its artistic value.
Clay tempered means that this katana has a soft spine and harder edge. The softness is for more resilience and the hardness is to keep its sharpness. This is achieved via the classic method of clay coating tempering. Also, the blades are hadori polished to get that extra shine on its hamon. Create Your Custom Samurai Sword

The Sharpened Full Tang
This katana is also sharpened adequately. Meaning, you can immediately use this for cutting practice and training. Also, the sword is a full tang piece, so its tsuka and tang are a single piece of solid metal. Being a full tang makes the sword more durable and solid. This is because its tang and tsuka arent just connected using a weld or screw.
Fittings and Decoratives
This katana sword is made up of fittings. These include the fuchi and kashira – which are the pommel and collar, the tsuba or hand guard which protects your hand from your opponents blade, and the menuki which are the tsuka-itos ornaments.
As for its decoratives, you can find the black samegawa wrapped around the tsuka. It protects this area while also keeping your hands dry during use. The samegawa also lets you properly grip the sword during practice. The authentic brown leather ito or tsuka-ito is a beautifying element of the sword that also helps counter technical failure. It plays a great role by lifting towards turns, making this even.
Not only is this katana a functional and solid blade for practice, it also brings out sheer beauty with its rosewood saya with buffalo horn. It adds more artistic value to the sword. However, it also protects the blade when not in use. It also comes with a silk sword bag for carrying the sword around.
