Munetoshi Performance Cutting Katana Samurai Sword T10 Differentially Hardened B
This is the Munetoshi T-10 Differentially Hardened Performance Mat Cutting Katana. Featuring a custom designed habaki by Jake of the Cutting Mechanics and specially designed blade, this shinogi-zukuri katana has been tailored to have the ultimate performance in mat cutting capabilities. This sword features a wider and thinner blade for better cutting performance and handling. The T-10 steel is differentially hardened with a midare hamon with ashi and midare boshi in the chu kissaki. The fittings were chosen based on user friendly Higo style fittings with a custom thin blackened brass dragonfly tsuba.

Designer's Notes: "These series of swords are designed and built with superb handling and cutting ability in mind, which is why I started with designing the habaki. Fractions of an inch or tenths of a millimeter have been taken into account in the dimensions of the habaki to serve as the heart of our competition grade series of swords. The habaki dimensions dictates how the sword handles and where the weight is distributed along the sword. Then the blade is designed according to the specific cutting purpose it will fulfill. How the sword flexes and cuts through a target are dicated by the dimensions of the katana, such as thickness, width, shinogi-ji width, and edge profile. Overall, I strived to design purpose-built swords that are tailored to the serious cutter, martial artist, or enthusiast."
