Product Description

Each piece in the Great wave Series (SH5004 Katana, SH5002 Wakizashi, & SH5022 Tanto) is stylized with the renowned Tomoe motif. The tsuba, fuchi, & kashira are made of black iron and marked with the Tomoe crest (mon). The blades of the great wave katana are hand-forged from T10 high-carbon steel and are differentially tempered using traditional claying methods. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent. Each piece has a deeply lacquered black saya with a one-piece brass habaki construction. Real ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka, and the tsuka-ito and sageo are made of premium woven Japanese black cotton. The great wave katana is constructed with a large o-kissaki and is ideal for cutting exercises (tameshigiri).
