Note: These brand new Yuki's did not meet our QC standard for the blade's razor sharp edge. The blades of these swords can be sharpened for actual use or they can be dulled down for use as an iaito.
The Yuki is hands down our best mat cutter. With its short point of balance, thin wide blade, and 3 sided Samgakdo design, the blade is extremely fast and precise. Whether you are cutting Wara Tatami or Tatami Omote the blade has almost no resistance when the edge alignment is correct. Trick cuts are extremely easy to perform and often times the mat is still standing after the cut is made. In short, this sword is a dream to cut with, for an unbeatable price! Yuki is also our first Korean sword offering from Munetoshi. It features a simplistic Ko Geung Ee (hand guard) and no Kalbe (side) profile, much like hira zukuri Japanese blades. It also features cotton Gamge (cord wrap) and real Sage (ray skin). Its low profile paired with its spring temper make it an exceptional mat cutter. Specs will slightly vary from piece to piece. Please note that this sword should never be used on hard targets. Incorrect draw cuts will result in serious injury.
Blade: The blade has been constructed from through hardened high carbon steel drawn to a spring heat treat in a 3 sided Samgakdo (hira zukuri) style. A wavy aesthetic hamon has been added along the ha of the sword. The blade comes full tang and slightly sharp. Kaljip: The Kaljip features a glossy black lacquered finish and bull horn Ip. The Kumn Ok is black cotton. Kal Jaru : The Ko Geung Ee is blackened steel in a cut out design. The Kal Jaru features two smoked bamboo Sum Be-Gum Ong. The Gamge is black cotton. The Sage is white ray skin. The Duitum Egi and Apm Egi are antiqued alloy in a simplistic style.
