Looking for a sword worthy of a true samurai warrior? The Koshi Sori O Kissaki Katana is a sword that any swordsman would be proud of. Handforged from 1095 high-carbon steel, this sword features a curved blade typical of Japanese swords. Its curve is closer to the base of the blade, which is called a koshi-sori style.
The blade has a hamon, or temper line, that runs horizontally along the blade. This is a sanbon-sugi hamon, meaning it has a jagged, pointed look.
Next, the katana has a brass blade collar, or habaki, before continuing with a black, alloy-based tsuba. There is a flower pattern adorning the hilt directly next to the tsuba. A burgundy cord wraps around black ray skin on the grip. The hilt ornament, or menuki, and end piece, or kashira, continue the flower pattern.
This sword comes with a hardwood scabbard, or saya. Towards the top of the scabbard, there is a wrapping of white ray skin. Next to the ray skin is polished buffalo horn at the opening of the scabbard and the kurigata. A kurigata is a knob for securing the multi-colored cord used for attaching the scabbard to a belt. There is a matching piece of buffalo horn at the other end of the scabbard.
Finally, this sword comes with a certificate of authenticity and a richly colored, embroidered sword bag. While this sword is fully functional, it is also beautiful, making it not just a tool for battle but a magnificent display piece as well.
