Hira zukuri Katana

A rather unusual style for a katana. The Hira Zukuri style is most often used on a tanto or wakizashi but we decided to give it a try and Zhui Feng didn't dissapointed at all.

  • T10 steel
  • hira zukuri style
  • wild hamon
  • silk ito
  • high quality fittings

Carbon Steel Hira Zukuri Katana

This custom piece is forged by the Zhui Feng forge and feature a Hira Zukuri style blade.

Once again the smiths at the Zhui Feng forge didn’t disappoint us here. Throughout the history of the Japanese swords, it’s hard to find these blades because of their thinner cross section and blade geometry which makes them more ‘fragile’ when performing a bad cut.

On the other hand, just because of that geometry, they are very (very) sharp..The blade of this sword in particular is made of T10 steel and differentially hardened with a nice visable ‘wild’ hamon on it. It measure about 73,5 cm from tsuba to tip and the weight is only 900 gram !

Furthermore, high quality, wave themed fittings are being used and imported silk ito is wrapped around the tsuka (handle). The saya is also not as most of the usual one’s you will find because of it’s rattan wrapped top part.
