Customized Wave Katana

A 'pimped version' of our basic katana , very solid construction and nice balance. Ideal for the iaidoka and or sword collector.

  • T10 steel
  • blackened fittings
  • brown leather ito
  • nice weight & balance
My personal opinion top

 

This is a pimped version (try-out) of our basic katana. The 'big lines' are kept the same so we still have a T10 steel blade with hi and a differentional hardening that results in a nice wave hamon.

 

We also kept the Koshi-Zhori (sometimes also called Bizen-sori since they mostly have this type of Koshi-Zhori) where the deepest point of the blade is near the munemachi and can be found on Heinan - Mid Kamakura period swords.

 

So where does this katana is different from the basic model ?

 

What we have changed (read upgraded) is the color of the samé (rayskin) which we colored black and the ito. On this particular model we've used high quality & imported black leather. So it's not the 'cheap made in China stuff'...

 

Fittings were blackened and a different pair of menuki was used as well.

 

This katana is currently only available in size 2.45 but i can fix a 2.55 one if needed :)
