Each Bushido Katana has a hand-forged & folded K120C powder steel blade, differentially tempered using a traditional claying method to produce an HRC60 edge, HRC40 back. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent and the grain pattern (hada) shows distinct layers. The saya is deeply lacquered in gold with inlaid brass cherry blossom (sakura) flowers. High quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka of the katana. The tsuba of the katana is of blackened and bronzed iron, with detailing in gold and silver and a battle scene decoration. The tsuka-ito and the sageo on these pieces are woven from premium Japanese cotton. The fuchi and kashira are of blackened bronze with brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The blade collar (habaki) is a one-piece brass construction. This katana has a medium-length (chu) kissaki.

Best sword I own

WHAT A WONDERFUL SWORD. VERY WELL PUT TOGETHER. EXTREMELY SHARP. THE SWORD JUST FEELS GOOD IN YOUR HANDS WELL BALANCED. THE ONLY THING IS THE HADA IS KIND OF HARD TO SEE IF IT IS NOT IN THE PROPER LIGHT. THIS IS THE BEST SWORD I OWN OUT OF SIX PAUL CHEN SWORDS.
