Taketori Katana - Limited Edition
A unqiue Taketori katana designed for the tameshigiri practitioner.
The Shinogi Zukuri (sugata) blade is hand forged and differentially hardened with traditional clay method with a gunome hamon.
This strong blade is very beefy and has no Bo-Hi. The excellent Ha geometry will experience less resistance while cuttings target and makes this katana very suitable for Tameshigiri.
The Taketori Katana features genuine black Same (Rayskin) on the Tsuka, with a very tightly-woven green cotton wrap (Tsuka-Ito).
The fuchi and kashira are decorated in a Japanese dogwood motif with Shishi menuki with a very blackened iron Taketori Katana. The nakago is double pegged for security.
The Saya is matt structured and the green Sageo fits nice to the Ito.
A completion for each collection but in fact an excellent performing katana in cutting hard and soft targets.
