Product Description

The infamous story of the 47 Ronin is one of the most celebrated and influential tales of the Samurai from the Edo period. It exemplifies the values of the samurai; loyalty and honor. Read about the history of the 47 ronin here. 
 

Analysis

  • Tsuba (hand guard) – very detailed designs and high-quality fittings. They are mostly black on black, so the designs are quite subtle, but upon close inspection, they are very detailed.
  • Hamon – really nice hamon pattern very easy to see in any lighting.
  • Bladehada pattern is very subtle but visible particularly on the hamon. This wood-grain-like pattern shows up because the blade is folded. The steel is K120C which is a wrought powdered steel. This steel is comparable to premium tool steels, providing a very high hardness and abrasion-resistance. The katana will keep a fine edge very well. For more on what to look for in sword steels, see our blog post. You will notice a ¾ inch sori (curvature of the inside edge (back of the blade)).
  • Saya (scabbard) - stonewashed matte black lacquered. This finishing style is very good for protecting against acquiring fingerprints and is very easy to keep clean. The katana has a nice, snug fit in saya. There is never a perfect fit, but the fit is as close as it gets.
  • Tsuka (handle) Very tightly wrapped ito over rayskin. The handle on the ronin katana is more on the slender/narrow end of things.
  • POB (point of balance) is about 5 inches from the tsuba allowing for great control of the tip of the blade.
