Warning: Not a toy!

Kawashima Steel™, forged by hand in Japan, with clay tempered Hamon. Hand sharpened with a Japanese whetstone. You can clearly see the randomized pattern of folding and clay tempering on the blade, it glistens in the light. That is how you will know it is real. Also, 1095 High Carbon Steel is not a common metal to find on an average sword. 1095 steel is reserved only for the best swords and can only be crafted with very particular attention to detail. Handforged precision is required to make a blade as hard and sharp as this.

Ryjin , often referred to as watatsumi Kami, is an ancient dragon God according to the Shinto Japanese legends. Sakura is, of coarse, the Japanese cherry blossom artistically hand carved on the solid brass Tsuba, Kashira, and Menuki. A suitable title for a katana 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.
