SG0050 Differentially hardened 2000 layer Steel blade with real hamon
The 28" blade with 10" tsuka has a silver toned design. This sword is built
for performance but also to be a display piece. The steel is differentially hardened 2000 layer steel and will be a tough blade for training. The hamon and hada on this sword
are very much real. The tsukaito is a silvery/gold toned cotton with a matching sageo. The saya has a polished rayskin wrap around the top 1/4 of the sword providing extra protection for the hand as well as adding a very elegant touch. There is no groove on this sword.
Like all swords in this line, the dimensions are fairly similar. Nagasa of around 28". Height at the machi (Motohaba) of
31mm with a motokasane (thickness) of 7.5mm. The blades taper nicely down to about 23mm (sakihaba) and
5mm (sakikasane, or thickness at the line that starts the tip). All blades have about a 5/8" even sori (curvature).
And each sword weighs about 2.25 pounds outside of the saya depending on the fittings and whether the sword has a bo-hi.
