The Peony and Bamboo Katana by Kaneie Sword Art is a lively and agile katana, largely due to its wide and deep Bo-Hi groove. This has reduced the weight of the blade considerably by removing mass whilst retaining strength by keeping the spine of the blade in a profile similar to an I-Beam. Due this reduced weight and balance, this katana could easily be used single-handedly by a user of average strength. While being optimized for speed and agility, this katana does sacrifice some of the striking power (gained by the greater mass) of katana that lack the Bo-hi groove.

This Katana is part of Kaneie’s ‘’Okuden’’ Class of swords - they were designed with the Japanese swordsmanship student in mind. Their overall cost was brought down by omitting the last several steps of a full ‘’art’’ katana polish. These last would have whitened the hamon more and refined the polish - though no additional practical cutting value would have been added to the sword

The blade has been created from T-10 high carbon steel and has been differentially hardened to leave a visible Gunome type hamon. The blade ends in an elongated O-Kissaki shaped tip. The tsuba of iron has been crafted in the form of bamboo, and its fuchi and kashira fittings are likewise made of iron. the habaki and seppa are of brass. The wooden tsuka has two panels of rayskin and is overlaid with knotted black cotton tsuka-ito cord with a pair of lion-dog menuki woven within.

The Saya scabbard is of wood and is finished with a layer of textured Ishime style black lacquer. It has a sageo cord of black and brown and its koiguchi and kojiri pieces are of buffalo horn. Comes with a purple cloth sword bag.
