Keshi means "poppy", which is the theme of this sword. The Tsuba of blackened iron depicts poppy leaves. Fuchi, Kashira and Menuki show the unique poppy flowers. Another highlight is the handle wrapped tightly in brown leather, which is wrapped over ray skin. Endings (Kurigata, Kojiri, Koiguchi) from buffalo horn adorn the black, high gloss lacquered scabbard.

Keshi Katana by Citadel

The razor-sharp blade is made of carbon steel 1075. Differentially hardened by use of clay to about 60 HRC (cutting edge) and around 40 HRC (back of the blade). A fuller (Bo-Hi), which also visible on the forged Habiki, reduces weight and provides an optimal balance to the blade. The masterful work of the blacksmith and a beautiful hamon line are visible thanks to the skills of the polisher.

Citadel stands for superior quality, which can only be achieved by masterly hand work. All knives and swords are almost entirely made by hand. Minor variations in size and shape are the result of individual piece production.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blade?

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
