This beautiful, hand-forged Japanese katana sword is an excellent display item while still being a fully functional 'Tameshigiri' cutter.
The 'Tsuka' (Handle) which measures approximately 10 inches and encapsulates a double pegged full tang, meaning that the sword steel runs from the tip of the blade (Kisaki) to the bottom of the handle and is suitable for either a two-handed or single hand grip.
The 26.69" Live (Sharp) blade is made from medium density carbon steel and features a deep bo-hi (Blood-Groove) to provide audible feedback when swung correctly. Also present is a prominent wire brushed Hamon line making the sword an incredible display piece.
The beautiful wenge wood 'Saya' (scabbard) doesn't include a 'Sageo' (Hanging cord), instead, the natural grain of the wood emphasizes the simplistic beauty of this sword.
