This KATANA is known from the movie „The Last Samurai“. With Saigo Takamori, the last Samurai, ended in 1877 a long Tradition. He didn't want to resign himself with the new political situation, the abolition of Samurais, and trumped up the last uprising against the new government. His Samurai fighters had no chance against the army, equipped with modern fire arms.
Each katana is delivered with a seal as a proof of originality. You will get the sword in a textile sheath and a premium quality collector wooden cassette. This katana can be used for cutting or for compat exercise.
The sword was made after a museum original. It is a masterpiece of Asian blacksmithing.
The blade is forged from 1045 carbon steel and has a Rockwell hardness of about 55° throughout the whole blade. This Katana, as well as all of the "Forged Line" is not differential-hardened, therefore the hardness at the back of the blade equals to the hardness of the cutting edge.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
