In swordsmithing, Hamon is a visible effect created on the blade by the hardening process. The hamon is the outline of the hardened zone which contains the cutting edge (ha). Blades made in this manner are known as differentially hardened, with a harder cutting edge than spine (for example: spine 40 HRC vs edge 58 HRC). This difference in hardness results from clay being applied on the blade prior to the cooling process. Less or no clay allows the edge to cool faster, making it harder but more brittle, while more clay allows the center and spine to cool slower, thus retaining its resilience.
My only qualm is that the handguard is a little loose, but other than that everything is perfect. I will absolutely be ordering more katanas from here in the future.

Looks amazing, arrived very quickly, very happy with it. My only issue with it is The day after I opened it I noticed the smallest hint of rust already starting to form at the very tip.

The katana is good-looking. Is too light for my personal preferences. I had to glue the small metal ring on the top side where the waist string runs through. It came off very easy. The blade as it is aluminum bends easily. In my opinion, it needs to be thicker and wider. That will make not bend so easily and give it more weight. Overall I am satisfied even though it is on the expensive side when it comes to the cost and came with no sword cover or bag.

I received the sword in a very timely manner. Getting shipped from China and arriving on my doorstep in a little over a week is pretty dang good. The sword overall is really sturdy and everything fits well. The only two gripes that I have are that the the piece that fits on the bottom of the handel wasn't ornamented. The other is that the blade is dull,dull,dull! I've ordered a sword previously from True Katana and that blade was great! I will have to get this sword sharpened or I've just bought a very expensive butter knife. By the way.. I love the instruction booklet. Don't put the sword in your mouth lol!
