Razor Sharp Hand Polished Blade with High Quality Fittings
Cold Steel has used only premium traditional materials for the Emperor katana fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver brass.
The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and each hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as we can possibly make it.
The Emperor katana features a rugged fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blades, heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is hand polished with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove).
Comes complete with black lacquered saya and a sword bag
