The Kumori katana continues Thaitsuki tradition, with a tradional hand forged, high carbon Japanese steel blade and top grade, hand crafted silver fittings.
The KTN4 is forged, polished and sharpened entirely by hand. A rarity in this price range. This is simply one of the finest Japanese katana blades you will ever see. Hand crafted silver fittings and traditional Japanese dark brown silk over an ivory rayskin tsuka with a flower motif round out this stunning sword.
The full tang Japanese high carbon steel blade is clay coated, heat treated, hand polished and sharpened. It is forged in the Koto style and a bo-hi. Differentially tempered, the edge hardness is 60 HRC and the body hardness is 35HRC for correct flex and superb feel when cutting. Ana abreviated Bo-HI reduces weight without sacrificing strength.
Thaitsuki does not overlook the saya as part of the finished product and this saya is truly beautiful! A two layer, hand rubbed black lacquered hardwood saya with black horn Koiguchi enhances your investment. This katana can be completely disassembled for full maintenance.
This premium katana will appeal to the practitioner seeking a high end cutting sword as well as serious collectors.
The KTN4 Comes complete with a Signed Certificate, Sword Stand, Sword Maintenance Kit and Silk Sword Bag,
