Product Description

This is the 30" blade Skyjiro Hota-Tegai Scallop 1070 Differentially Hardened Forge Folded Katana. The blade is made of 1070 high carbon steel that has been forge folded for a total layer count of over 4,800 layers. The blade has an authentic gunome hamon and the boshi is a komaru style turn back in the kissaki. The kissaki itself is a geometric shaped extended chu-kissaki with sharp yokote line. The blade is finely polished to where the hamon activity and folded steel mokume or wood grain pattern is brought out naturally using Japanese water stones. The habaki is solid yellow bronze as are the seppa, tsuba, and fuchi/kashira. The tsuba is an intricate cutout design and pleasing to the eye. The handle is wrapped with green Skyjiro silk with gyakute or reverse mounted menuki which are properly tied over black lacuqered samegawa ray skin. The saya features genuine buffalo horn koiguchi, kurikata, and kojiri. This katana has a great feel when swung with enough weight and forward point of balance to cut through medium to hard targets with ease, yet has good handling for fast direction change.

Guard: The quality tsuba is solid brass with intricate cutouts which is then blackened.

Handle: Traditional Japanese style hinerimaki green silk wrapped handle with real black lacquered samegawa and double mekugi pins colored green.
