Shogun Katana 'Sadanobu'

ABOUT THE SWORD

    •  This Katana is 100% handmade. It is hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened.
    • The blade is razor sharp. It is made of clay tempered 1095 Carbon Steel. During the hardening process, the difference in cooling time cased by the clay layer results in two different hardness areas. The edge cools faster and forms a very hard steel structure. The body cools slower and forms a very tough steel structure. The boundary between these two areas is called hamon and is commonly seen as a frosted wavy line. The sword makes a whistling sound when swung properly, which is excellent for practicing technique. 
    • The Katana has a full length tang structure, which enhances the strength of the sword manifold. This makes the blade practically unbreakable.
    • The high quality materials, the full length tang structure and the hand sharpening results in excellent cutting ability. This Katana is able to cut through a bottle-thick bamboo tree.
    • The rayskin handle secures a firm grip and maintains its rich color for decades.
    • The saya is made of sturdy, hard wood that protects the blade from dust and moisture when rested.
    • Certificate of Authenticity is included in the package. This is signed by the sword maker and has our stamp on it to verify the authenticity of the sword. The certificate is not printed on regular paper but on a heavy parchment, similar to what was used by ancient sword makers.
    • The sword includes a complementary bag, which can serve as decorative packaging if you are buying the sword as a gift.
    • Sword stand not included. You can find these for purchase under "Accessories."
