Blade: 9260 spring steel Katana Blood Groove: on both sides Blade Edge: fully sharpened Habaki (Blade Collar) & Seppa (Spacer) Material: Brass Tsuba (Hand Guard): metal alloy Sakura Tsuba Fuchi (Handle Collar) and Kashira (Handle Buttcap): matching metal alloy Tsuka (Handle): Authentic white ray skin with ornament menuki Tang: Full tang with 2 Mekugi pegs Saya (scabbard): white bamboo hardwood saya. This is a fully functional Japanese spring steel katana.The blade is handmade from 9260 Silicon Alloy Spring Steel. This type of blade has more lateral strength and is easier for Tameshigiri (bamboo/mat cutting) from the weight and the reduced drag. The spring steel blade is most commonly seen in application on fencing foils where it needs to withstand a high degree of bend and still be able to return to center. The 9260 is a silicon alloy which has a significantly increased fatigue resistance compared to standard carbon steel.
The addition of 2% silicon changes the behaviour of the steel drastically for use in a katana. The balance of the blade is perfect and the sword is completely functional and very sharp. It can be used for drills, practice and test cutting.
The saya is made of high quality bamboo wood. The Japanese Sakura flower tsuba is made of metal alloy. This sword is an excellent sword for training (perfectly suitable for Tameshigiri).
It is full tang and sharpened. We are offering customization for those who like to personalize their sword.
