Paul Chen Hanwei Bushido Folded Katana Features and Specs:

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.
