Description of the Product
The strong full tang Shinken meant for heavy cutting as well as a serious collectible. The blade is hand forged from differentially hardened 1095 high carbon steel and polished by hand. The beautiful katana features beatiful Sanbonsugi hamon (tempering line) and deep Koshi-sori curve in the blade. Imposing O-Kissaki, large sword tip, with Shinogi-zukuri blade geometry gives it a dignified touch as well as effective cutting power.
Delicately fitted on the hardwood tsuka are flower patterned fuchi, kashira and menukis. The cotton ito is Katatemaki-wrapped over black stingray skin. Brass seppa and habaki secure the sterling silver koshirae.
Handmade brown hardwood Saya is partially covered with white stingray skin and has been treated with 4 layers of lacquer to highlight the wood's beautiful grains. Polished genuine black buffalo horn koiguchi, kurikata and kojiri with premium grade sageo concludes the whole.
Comes with an embroidered BattleBlades Inc. sword bag and a certificate of authenticity.
