The Type of Steel for the Sword
This Katana makes use of T10 Steel that went through folding and Hadori polishing. T10 is a kind of steel that is tough and durable, making it a great material for crafting swords.
Folding was a refinement process for steel in ancient Japan. Today, it is a process that enhances the Katana swords artistic value. The blade is clay tempered. This is a process where a wet mixture of clay is applied to the sword.
The compound often consists of clay, stone powder, water, rust, and a bit of ash. Clay slurry is applied to the blades edge and spine; later, the blade will undergo sharpening.
The Katana Blade
As mentioned, this Katana has a Hadori polished blade. It was a polishing method developed by a famous polisher. It works to enhance the brilliance of the Hamon.
Its blade is fully sharpened, and whats most important is that its a full tang. This means that it’s Tang stretches out to the entire length of the Tsuka.
Having a full tang sword makes the blade and handle one solid piece, leaving this Katana more durable and resistant to rough and rigid use.
Tsuka Ito and Samegawa
The combination of authentic brown Ito and white Samegawa make for a great-looking Samurai sword. Yet aside from adding its aesthetics, these have other functions too.
The Ito reinforces the Tsuka, preventing issues when using the Katana. Leather is a great material since its durable and has a tight hold.
The Samegawa helps keep the Ito in place and it wont loosen while in use. The Samegawa also enhances better grip, preventing slip ups while your hands are sweating after long use.
