Additional information

Please Note: This Katana has a matching Wakizashi available separately. Combine the two to create a matched daishō set!

The Senshi Erai Hito No Katana is a superbly well-balanced and swift-striking Katana with classical styling. The blade is handforged from folded 1095 high carbon steel with a deep bohi groove which reduces unneeded weight and greatly aids in making a sword that is a deft and agile performer – an easy and natural extension of the swordsman’s arm that retains respectable and powerful cutting potential. Once forged into form the blade was quenched in the traditional clay-tempering process to imbue it with a natural and genuine hamon of hardened steel to imbue it with an edge hardness of 59-60 HRc and a spine and body of 40-45 HRc. The blade was finished with a careful hand-polish to bring out the full beauty of its hamon and the ripple-like patterning of the forge-folded steel.

The tsuba, fuchi and kashira are crafted from antiqued, heat-blued steel which is embellished with inlaid silver. The grip is well-carved from wood and is fitted with genuine rayskin which is tightly bound with brown silk tsuka ito cord with a wrap done in the katate-maki style. Silver-plated menuki are carefully fitted beneath these grip wrap folds to finish the Wakizashi. Its matching Saya scabbard is crafted from wood with a final finish of layered glossy black lacquer and a panel of inlaid rayskin which was polished flush before having its recesses filled with lacquer to create a unique mottled finish. Its koiguchi, kurigata and kojiri are polished buffalo horn and the sageo cord is premium brown silk. The sword comes with a silk sword bag and a manufacturer’s production certificate.

Like the Japanese swords of many vendors – it is common for the lacquer finish on the scabbard to have some visible scuffs, scratches and other minor cosmetic blemishes visible when examined closely.
