The straight growth is typical of the bamboo. And thus the bamboo Tanto by Citadel has a small blade deflection. Butt end (Kashira) and grip ferrule (fuchi) are made of iron, covered with a simple but elegant, high-gloss black lacquer. Also from iron is the tsuba, which is not cast – it is made by hand. The butt end and ferrule grip are finely engraved with bamboo motifs. Ornamental rate (Menuki) with silver plated bronze offer a nice contrast to the dark winding handle (Tsuka-Maki) and underline the graceful picture. This quality sword comes together with origin certificate, a quality sword bag, and a padded Cordura bag for transport.
The razor sharp blade is made of 1075 carbon steel. Using the clay hardening method, the blade is hardened to approximately 60 HRC at the cutting edge and approximately 40 HRC hardened at the back of the blade. Through the skills of the polisher the masterful work of the blacksmith comes fully to bear. A mirror-polished surface, as well as a clearly recognizable temper line (hamon) are the result.
Each product is one and only and make by hand of masters. The Citadel have purpose to make all not only effective but beautiful and harmonious as well. History of Citadel.
