Our factory has used only traditional materials for our Japanese swords fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver brass. Weight: 37.2 oz. Thick: 9/32' Blade: 28 3/4' Handle: 10 1/2' long. Sam (Ray Skin). Black silk braid cord Steel: 1055 Carbon Overall Length: 39 1/4' Black Lacquered Wood Scabbard
The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and each hilt is covered in Sam (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the swords aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as we can possibly make it.
All feature fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blades, each heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove). All come complete with a BLACK LACQUERED SCABBARD and a BLUE-VIOLET COVER BAG.
