karakusa katana


A handforged and folded karakusa katana with no bo-hi and traditional hand-polish from Huanuo Forge

The blade is made of High Carbon 1095 steel. This steel is homogeneous and has a perfect Carbon proportion. Because of this High Carbon percentage the blades are very strong and made for functional use.
The blade is handforged, folded and traditional clay tempered and the created gunome and notare hamon is appearing due to the traditional hand polishing.

This blade has no Bo-Hi so it is solid and it 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. 

The karakuse tsuba, kashira and fuchi are made from blackened iron. 

The excellent black saya is wrapped with nice black japanese Cotton.

Of course this katana comes with a nice sword bag.
