The Japanese Maple Katana is one of best value for money swords we have ever offered. The blade is forged from a thick and solid folded carbon steel which is expertly Clay Tempered and polished. The habaki is cast in brass with the Tsuba and fittings also constructed from brass for extra strength. The tsuka (handle) is wrapped in cotton over real rayskin and the gloss red saya (scabbard) is made of timber.
Overall this is an exceptional sword for the money that will look good on display and could be used for light to medium cutting. The only problem is why would you want to scratch such a beautiful sword by cutting tatami!!
