Hand forged Folded powder steel Blade!
Bushido, or "Way of the Warrior", defines the code of conduct an honorable Samurai must follow. Much more than the western ideal of chivalry Bushido is a way of life; in both ancient and modern times. The koshirae of our Bushido set features various samurai battle scenes.
The Hanwei Bushido Tanto Japanese Sword is a sharpened and ready for battle Samurai sword and has a hand-forged & folded K120C powder steel blade, differentially tempered using a traditional claying method to produce an HRC60 edge, HRC40 back. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent and the grain pattern (hada) shows distinct layers.
The saya are deeply lacquered in gold with inlaid brass cherry blossom (sakura) flowers. The tsuka is a gold-plated brass with a battle-scene decoration in relief. The fuchi and kashira are of blackened bronze with brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The blade collar (habaki) is a one-piece brass construction. The blade is grooved (bo-hi) on both sides.
