Ryusui Katana with Tamahagane Blade
It took a while before i could get the forge to move their *** to make a few of these tamahangane swords but the wait is over.
As said, the blade made of (Chinese) tamahagane and thanks to the high level , kesho hadori polish, it does show a very attractive steel pattern.
While you could do some light cutting with this sword, i just don't recommend it because you will ruin the polisher's work pretty quickly and a fair amount of the total price of this piece is coming exactly from that :)
The wave themed fittings are made of blackened brass and catfish menuki can be found on the tsuka.
