Description

Details

The Kami Katana has a hand-forged and folded K120C powder steel blade with a long (o)kissaki featuring a hand engraved “Fudo” Horomono and Bo-Hi. The folding process creates exceptional hada, or grain pattern, along the blade and is accentuated by the distinctive hamon.

The Saya is deeply lacquered in red, with a black ring-carved section at the mouth. The ray skin used on the tsuka is of the highest quality, and the tsuka-ito and sageo are woven from best quality Japanese silk. The Fuchi, Kashira, Kojiri, Koiguchi and Kurigata are all made from blackened bronze, with decoration in relief and selective detailing of copper, silver and gold.

The Tsuba, which depicts the Kami, or Guardian Warriors, is crafted in hardened blackened copper with decoration in relief and selective silver and gold detailing. The Habaki is of two-piece construction, the inner section being copper and the outer section gold-plated brass. See Models SH1202 and SH1203 for the Kami Wakizashi and Tanto details.
