My personal opinion top

Because this sword is very light (only 890 gram!) and has a very good balance with a standard size tsuka, it's the BEST SWORD we saw untill now to practise Iaido.

This samurai sword, the Shinto katana of the Hanwei forge has a hand-forged 1065 high-carbon steel blade and is differentially tempered using a traditional claying method witch reslut in an edge hardness of 60HRC and a back hardness 40HRC .

It is mounted in black and the tsuka-ito is made of premium black Japanese cotton. The saya is done in a deep black lacquer with a black cotton sageo. A finely rendered dragon, detailed in gold, with true front-and-back detail, forms the black iron tsuba.

The fittings are superbly antiqued adding to the aesthetics of the set. The blades feature a groove (bo-hi) on both sides and are constructed with a medium length (chu) kissaki.

If you are in the market for a high quality sword for your collection, you simply can’t go wrong with the Shinto. It is remarkably beautiful, and should you ever decide to get into Iaido practice you’ll already have the sword for the job.
You’ll find that the finely carved fittings, the gloss lacquered saya, and the beautiful hammon lines make this sword stand out in any collection.

This katana does come with a cleaning kit and sword bag !
