The Kumori Japanese Katana can be completely disassembled for full maintenance. The blade is high carbon steel with an Edge Hardness= 60-63 HRC Body Hardness=30-33 HRC.

The Thaitsuki Japanese Samurai Katana Series keep true to the samurai code, ”To strive for perfection”. All Katana produced by the family run Thaitsuki Forge are handmade with the highest standards and attention to detail. All of their sword craftsmen and artisans have served for years in apprenticeship under the master sword smith, Mr. Sivarat. Each katana is made following the same traditional methods that the family run Thaitsuki Forge has been using for over 200 Years.
From the perfectly wrapped Ito, to the handmade Kashira, Menuki, Tsuba and Fuchi, each piece is made from skilled craftsmen that specialize and take pride in their art. The Habaki, Menuki, Fuchi and Kashira are handmade from quality silver. The Tsuka is skillfully wrapped in leather or silk and only genuine Ray skin is used. The Saya is crafted from hard wood then carefully lacquered and the Koiguchi is made from genuine black horn. The blade is hand forged from only the best High Carbon – Japanese Steel and perfectly balanced.
Each Japanese Katana comes with it’s own individual serial number and certificate from Thaitsuki Nihonto so you can trace it back to when and by whom it was made. Each katana is handmade and the fittings are handcrafted so no katana will be ever be exactly alike. Each katana is it’s own, one of a kind, work of art.
PLEASE NOTE: There may be some minor to moderate cosmetic blemishing present on the scabbard and minor blemishing on the blade. These are handcrafted and hand-finished so minor cosmetic imperfections may be present.
