The Tachi Meiji Samurai sword is a high quality replica reproduction of the original held in the Marto private collection that dates back to the Meiji age, starting with the imperial power restoration in 1868. The scabbard and the handgrip are made in ivory like resin, finely engraved with mythological scenes which mainly depict dragons. The scabbard is also provided with two hanger rings used to carry the sword suspended with the cutting edge toward the ground, a modality known as jindachi zukuri, opposed to the buke zukuri, instead the typical way of carrying a katana, that is with the blade toward the sky.
The authentic-looking hamon on the blade is artificial (not made by differential clay hardening). It is ground by a special device. The blade is made of stainless Steel X30Cr13, hardened to 48-52 Rockwell.
This is just an ornamental item, not suitable for combat or any other practical use!
Premium quality made in Spain by Marto.
