This exceptional piece features a high-performance blade crafted from T10 carbon steel, clay tempered with a genuine hamon, a handle adorned with real white samegawa and black cord wrapping, a mix-colored saya made of hardwood with a premium natural lacquer in a dominant red hue, and a copper tsuba with a floral theme, enhanced with gold and silver gilding technology. This katana represents more than a weapon; it is a work of art that embodies the strength and elegance of the samurai.
T10 Carbon Steel Full Tang Blade with Real Hamon:
The blade is the heart of the katana, and this one is forged from T10 carbon steel, prized for its superior edge retention and durability. The blade is clay tempered, a traditional Japanese technique involving the application of a special clay mixture before quenching, resulting in a genuine hamon, a visual testament to the differential hardening of the blade. This process ensures that the blade is hard and sharp at the edge while being flexible along the spine, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility.
Black Handle with Real White Samegawa:
The handle is adorned with real white samegawa, or stingray skin, a traditional material valued for its excellent grip and unique texture. The handle is also wrapped in black cord, a traditional technique that not only enhances grip but also contributes to the aesthetic beauty of the sword. The combination of real white samegawa and black cord wrapping ensures a secure and comfortable grip, allowing for precise and controlled movements during use.
Red Hardwood Saya with Premium Natural Lacquer:
The saya, or scabbard, is crafted from hardwood and coated with premium natural lacquer, resulting in a mix-colored appearance with a predominant red hue. The lacquer not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the saya but also provides protection to the wood and the enclosed blade. The hardwood ensures that the blade is kept safe and secure while not in use, adding to the longevity of the sword.
Copper Tsuba with Flowers Theme:
The tsuba, or hand guard, is crafted from copper and features a floral theme, a symbol of beauty and elegance in Japanese culture. The tsuba is also enhanced using gold and silver gilding technology, a technique that involves applying thin layers of gold and silver to the surface, adding a touch of opulence and refinement to the katana. The tsuba provides the necessary balance and hand protection during use while adding character and elegance to the sword.
With its T10 carbon steel blade, real white samegawa and black cord-wrapped handle, mix-colored hardwood saya, and floral-themed copper tsuba embellished with gold and silver gilding, this katana is a functional piece of art that honors the samurai tradition. Whether you are a martial artist, a collector, or a connoisseur of fine craftsmanship, this katana is a prized addition to any collection. Embrace the spirit of the samurai with this exquisite handmade katana.
