The Tamahagane blade is forged, folded and differential hardened. The Bamboo Tamahagane Katana is produced in small amounts with eye for detail. Huanuo Forge made this Tamahagane material in a Chinese Tatara, a clay furnace with chargoal and controlled with bellows. The Smith will break and combines high and low carbon pieces during forging, this will result in a blade with a low carbon core and high carbon skin. Due to this process you will have a really shock absorbing sword with an excellent edge. Of course all the blade are traditional clay tempered and the created Hamon is appearing due to the hand polishing with imported Japanese stones.The blade geometric is refined and each blade is traditional final polished with a 60 hours taking process. The very nice geometric Kissaki is really overwhelming.

The blade has no Bo-Hi and this causes a massive nagasa and this will create more power while hitting a target. Also the blade will experience less resistance while hitting some tatami and the cuts will look cleaner using a correct technique.

The Tsuka is covered with white same (rayskin) and wrapped with Japanese Silk. The Tsuka is covered with two Mekugi (Bamboo Pins).

The Kabuto Menuki (not blackened), Kashira and Fuchi are made from blackenend silver/nickel.

The Bamboo Tsuba is made from blackened silver/nickel (massive) and features a beautifull and authentic theme.

The excellent black saya is wrapped with nice black Japanese Silk.

A swordbag is included.

Werkelijk een prachtig stuk Japanse cultuurkunst! Tot in detail afgewerkt je voelt de traditie wanneer je het in handen hebt. Uitstekend voorgelicht door Dhr. Klaver, veel dank voor de keurige afhandeling.

    Tamahagane Bamboo Katana huanuo review

    I was very pleased when I received the Bamboo tamahagane katana. It is definitely a beautiful piece and an example of refined craftsmanship. Even though it was not produced in a Japanese workshop (the price would be 5 times as high) the expertise of producing high-standard blades with traditional approaches cannot be overlooked. The katana is very well-balanced, beautifully polished, and the somewhat irregular hamon has a beautiful structure. The details of the tsuka are really nice and the pattern of the tsuba fits very well with the other parts. In any case this is a beautiful and very carefully produced sword and an enrichment of my small collection.
