Munetoshi Akitsushima Katana T10 Choji Hamon
Out of Stock
FREE Tatami Cutting Mat
The Akitsushima is a very light weight and fast blade designed to perform trick cuts and Nukitsuke. There is very slight Niku on the blade so it cuts very clean, however, don't let the light weight of the blade fool you into thinking the blade is not tough. The T10 of the blade and strong geometry insures that the blade can take a decent amount of punishment and keep on cutting. The blade is very capable of taking on multiple tatami mats and the light weight means that the cuts will be very swift. Nukitsuke techniques performed with the katana are very fast and clean. Double cuts are a breeze to perform due to the light weight of the blade and the thin Ha finish. The crisp geometry and geometric kissaki makes the sword perfect for display.
This is the limited edition Choji Akitsushima. Each blade features a unique Choji style hamon with full lobes.
We have a very limited number of these swords.
