Description Item Specs
Due the popularity of the factory made Kenshin Sakabato this hand made practical version was forged. The Sakabato are not found historically in Japanese swordsman ship and have only recently become popular with the Manga character Kenshin. Since Kenshin gave this sword its main stream birth the sword is seen as almost benevolent. However, one of the origins of this sword is from a tanto named the kubikiri. One translation of this term is the the doctor's knife, but another translation is head cutter. This sword excels at chopping and short cuts. Since the samurai focused so much on these strikes it seems like this is a sword with a not so benign spirit.
  • Blade: The blade is hand forged with a mirror polished finish and a razor sharp edge. The hamon is found along the inside curve of the blade with a blood line opposite, against the shinogi. The kissaki has been reversed and even though the kissaki acts like a false edge it is razor sharp.
  • Saya: The saya is hard wood with a glossy black finish. The sageo is black cotton cord.
  • Tsuba: The tsuba is a composite steel. The Habaki is a one piece brass construction secured by a brass Seppa. Another Seppa secures the handle of the sword. The Fuchi is polished steel.
  • Handle: The handle is wrapped with black imitation ray skin with a black cotton cord wrap. Two menuki depicting dragons are on each side of the handle. Two mekugi (bamboo pin) secures the tang to the handle. The kashira is polished steel.
  • This sword can be completely disassembled for maintenance.
