An almost pure-black sword, the only lightness comes from the white Menuki, gold cover in front of the Tsuba, and the lighter cutting edge defined by the Hamon line. This Katana is not just for show - it is also Battle-Ready.
Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening. The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, and keeps its edge very well.
Clay Tempered: The blade has been clay tempered in order to harden the cutting edge while still allowing the spine to remain flexible. The tempering process imbues the blade with a distinctive Hamon (blade pattern).
