This Ronin Katana has a sharp, 1060 high carbon steel blade that has been through-hardened. The blade was crafted after the dotanuki style, which emphasized function over aesthetic form. It is characterized by katana blades that are both wide and thick-spined for maximum cutting damage and durability. Its name is a testament to this ability, as dotanuki means ‘’sword that cuts through torsos.’’

The Dotanuki style swords were favored by daimyo Kato Kiyomasa when he invaded Korea - his personal retinue were equipped with such swords and he brought along smiths who specialized in the Dotanuki geometry to keep his army well-outfitted. These sword blades, when compared to more aesthetic katana styles were at the height of their popularity in periods of war, and this popularity predictably faded as Japan left its conflicted feudal past for the more peaceful Edo period.

The fittings of this katana; the tsuba, fuchi and kashira are of black iron. The seppa and habaki are of brass. The wooden grip is wrapped with rayskin and overlaid with tightly twisted silk tsuka-ito cord. Two brass menuki are woven into the grip. The wooden saya scabbard is coated with black lacquer. Its Kojiri, Koiguchi and Kurigata are of polished buffalo horn. A sageo cord of silk is knotted to the saya. Comes with a black cloth sword bag.

This type of sword is considered a dedicated cutting katana by Ronin Katana and well suited for cutting against traditional targets.
