Scratch & Dent Forge Direct Elite T10 Custom Katana 18651Be the first one to write a review
26" T10 Differentially Hardened Master Smith blade with partial bo-hi and premium blue/black themed fittings - a rejected Forge Direct Japanese Elite Custom Katana ($699.99).
Scratch and Dent Issue: Extremely minor comsetic misalignment of the seppa (spacers). Otherwise, the sword is in exceptional condition.
This was a Forge Direct Elite T10 custom sword order completed in January 2019 - however the photos were taken a few days previous to the sword being listed here for sale as a scratch and dent item.
The original order details as ordered by the customer are presented below and were made to specifications by the forge.
26" (66cm) Blade
T0013 Elite Copper Fitting Set
M1 - Black Ito
Unfortunately, there was a slight misalignment with the way the unique Ox themed tsuba fits to the handle as shown below:
It is otherwise in perfect condition, with no looseness or other issues - however this slight cosmetic defect can save you hundreds of dollars and is shipped direct from our friends at Ronin Katana who have been keeping it maintained while in storage for us.
