Quantity

The Kiku Katana blade is made of  differentially hardened High Carbon HCS 1095 steel with a natural and genuine hamon. A High Carbon steel refers to a variety of carbon (+/- 0.95) and is well-suited to use for Japanese swords. Their suitability comes from hardness, resistance to abrasion and deformation and their ability to hold a cutting edge. This steel is very durable and ideal for tameshigiri.

This blade has no Bo-Hi, is very solid and will create more power while cutting a target. Also the blade will experience less resistance hitting a target and the cuts will be very clean with the right technique.

The Tsuka is covered with real white same (rayskin) and wrapped with black Silk. For safety the tsuka has two bamboo pins (mekugi).

The katana is stylized with a round Kiku tsuba and a matching fuchi and kashira.

The excellent blackened gloss saya includes a nice black Sageo and inlaid cherry blossom.

Of course this katana comes with a sword bag and maintenance kit.
