This is the T10 Clay Tempered Shirasaya Katana in rosewood finish. The shirasaya style of Japanese sword mount was primarily meant for storing blades when they were not in use. The shirasaya with its natural rosewood finish allowed for the wood to breathe better and contract/expand with weather changes while keeping the precious sword inside as clean as possible.
This is a clay tempered Katana that exhibits one of the most appealing Hamon temper lines that is authentic and distinct as a result of traditional Clay Tempering Processes.
The rosewood tsuka matches the saya finish and features a double bamboo mekugi pin. The habaki is made of brass. The saya throat koiguchi is lined with black polymer for added strength against cracking.
The Kissaki has a well defined Yokote. The sword is full tang and fully sharpened. It is capable of cutting medium targets such as bamboo, water bottle, small tree branches and tatami mats. The handle is also made of high quality natural rosewood.
