Hand Forged Clay Tempered 1050 Carbon Steel
Full Tang Live Blade
Includes Sword Bag
The Chrysanthemum Katana is part of our differentially heat treated range and is fantastic value for money. It features a Hand Forged, Full Tang 1050 carbon steel blade beautifully polished with a real Hamon. The Tsuka is timber with genuine Rayskin, wrapped very tightly with quality Ito so as not to come undone with repetitive use during martial arts training. Also for strength the Fuchi/Kashira are painted brass and the tastefully decorated Tsuba is solid steel. The Saya is timber that is painted in a textured finish so as not to take finger prints during constant handling like gloss finish will. The Sageo cord is also of better quality so as to be secured properly during training. It is suitable for occasional medium to heavy cutting and will make a great entry level martial arts training and cutting sword.
