I have a few of these in my collection and I can tell you this is the most excellent sword you can get for under $1800.This KATANA is hand forged and hand sharpened using Japanese methods to create a perfect blade. Fully functional and battle ready. The accessories of the sword are all authentic from the ray skin handle, to silk sage-o and copper oxidized fittings. This is the best sword you will find in the price range. Ever heard a picture can speak a thousand words!!!! Look a the pics again!! What else can I say about this stunning work of art hand crafted in the traditional method. This sword starts out as a 12" block of thick hard outer steel with a soft inner core as in pictures. Soft core allows flexible sword and hard 1095 steel on the outer edge for razor sharp edge! Outer steel is folded 1024 times. This is a much more expensive method called (Kobuse) and is heated, Hammer forged and clay tempered to length. Then it goes through several steps to grind and sharpen then hand polished out as you see it in the pics. The result is Amazing! This truly is a collector's item but is Fully Functional and Battle Ready! Even the Tsuba(hand guard) is hand forged which truly makes each of these swords unique as none are the exact same! The Detail on the one piece brass Tsuba is amazing. I work directly with a forge that will hand make this exact sword with all the hardware and clay tempering once you purchase it. Please allow 3-4 weeks for your sword to be forged out of a raw hunk of steel into this beauty!
