Warning: Not a toy!
Kawashima Steel™, forged by hand in Japan, with clay tempered Harmon. Hand sharpened with a Japanese whetstone. You can see the randomized pattern on the blade formed during the forging process and clay tempering of the hamon (edge). This material and quality craftsmanship is unrivaled for anything under 10 grand, and 1095 High Carbon Steel is not a very common metal to find on the market. This blade is very hard and very sharp.

Uzume (Ama-no-Uzume), according to the Japanese Shinto legends, is the Goddess of dawn. Uzume once was believed to have kept the sun from rising, enacting revenge on Susano'o during a quarrel. Later, Uzume was associated with the Japanese phrase Land of the Rising Sun, and also worship by Hondo (rice farmers). A suitable title for a katana from the Land of the Rising Sun with a 1095 high carbon steel blade forged in Japan.

This is the real thing! Well balanced and fully functional. Suitable for Tameshigiri, and real cutting, etc. It can be disassembled and re-assembled.

Package Includes:
1 Assembled Katana.
1 Silk Katana Bag.
1 Wooden Katana Box.
1 Cleaning Kit.
1 Glossy Katana Stand.
