Black Bamboo Hand-Forged Katana

Price: $199.95
The Black Bamboo Hand-Forged Katana is a full tang samurai sword measuring 40 1/2" in length. The 28 1/2" blade is made from 1060 carbon steel, so it's strong and durable, while still maintaining some flexibility. A real hamon line separates the razor sharp edge from the rest of the blade, showcasing the careful tempering process undertaken by experienced swordsmiths. A blood groove runs the length of top edge of the blade on both sides. This would have collected the "contributions" of enemies in ancient wars.

The handsome hand guard is made from zinc, with a 3" diameter; The tsuba has a simple bamboo design with a glossy black finish. This element echoes that of the black lacquered wooden saya protecting the blade. The scabbard is made from hardwood, painted black, and given a high shine piano finish. A black cotton sageo, or cord wrapping, is tied around the saya in a bow knot. This gives a no-slip hold on the saya when the sword is being unsheathed.

The black cotton wrapping on the saya matches the black ito on the handle; This cord wraps a handle covered with genuine ray skin. The wrapped tsuka also features ornamental pieces, or menuki, along its 11 1/2" length. The real ray skin provides a textured grip that, combined with the cotton cord wrapping, gives the wielder a secure grip. Genuine ray skin was traditionally used, and is prized by weapons and sword collectors today.

This battle ready sword comes with a quality cloth sword bag, which is great for preventing damage to your sword when storing or carrying. The certificate of authenticity that comes with the katana showcases the materials, processes, serial number, and designer of your sword. This is a great way to show off the quality of your carbon steel samurai sword.

This hand-forged samurai katana is fully functional, so you can use it to slice tatami mats or show off the sharpness of its blade in backyard battles. However, it's so gorgeous that many choose to keep this sword in a display case to be admired. The choice is yours.
