The blade collar (Habaki) is brass and the iron fittings (Tsuba, Fuchi, Menuki, Kashira) present edelweiss, decorated with gold and silver. Grip-wrap is Katate Maki-Style (War-wrap) made of silk, under which real ray skin is underlayed. Two dowels (mekugi) fix the blade in the grip. The Tenkei Katana will be delivered in a wooden box with a sword stand.
The scabbards are made exactly to the size of the blade. Please select a scabbard you like. If you´re not sure, whether it is a suitable one, contact us with your order number and we will recommend you a suitable style. If you have already received the sword, we will ask you after receiving your order to submit several measurements of the sword blade. If we still have not dispatched the sword, we will take measurements of the blade ourselves and have the scabbard made for you in correct size.
