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 :)
