SKU: WG202 Categories: , , ,


In stock

The Iron Tiger Forge Cloud Dragon Katana features in brilliant detail the Unryū sky dragon among an elevated koshirae setting and a lacquered rayskin saya scabbard. The blade is hand forged from 1095 high carbon steel and has been differentially tempered using the traditional clay tempered technique, as evident by its genuine hamon which was carefully shaped into the form of billowing clouds along the length of the blade edge. A fine finishing polish to the blade highlights the natural beauty of this hamon of hardened steel and its genuine geometric tip yokote.

The finely cast tsuba, fuchi and kashira hilt components are crafted from antiqued brass, with detailing picked out in gold and silver. The habaki is brass and its surmounted seppa are fine copper. The wooden tsuka grip is inlaid with panels of genuine rayskin which is bound in well-knotted tsuka ito cord. The companion saya scabbard to the sword is carved from wood and overlaid thoroughly in high quality samegawa rayskin. Its speckled effect was created by filling in the low portions of the rayskin with a glossy black lacquer, and the polishing the raised rayskin flush with the lacquer for a unique appearance which is painstaking to achieve, but a beauty of traditional craftsmanship. The quality of this saya work is matched with a koiguchi, kurigata and kojiri of polished buffalo horn. A sageo cord of black and red-flecked silk completes the saya.

Included with the sword is a brocade-bound display and gift box which comes complete with a traditional wood-boxed sword maintenance kit. A cloth sword bag is also included.

Please Note: The design and color of the brocade cloth of the display / gift box may vary.
