Scratch and Dent Issue: None. The order was rejected by the customer due to Covid related issues in 2020.
This was a Forge Direct "Muramasa" Laminated Katana that was sadly abandoned by the customer during extensive delays caused from Covid related shutdowns..
As we have already paid the forge, we are now looking to try to at least recover some of the investment made to create this blade as cancellations like this really do leave us in the lurch and threaten all of our custom sword projects, so it being listed here for sale as a 'scratch and dent' sale item (even though it is NOT technically a scratch and dent item).
The Muramasa has a unique laminated blade with a hamon created by metal extraction to reveal the T10 tool steel edge supported by 1065 carbon steel sides and a shock resistant 1045 carbon steel core (click here to read more about the Muramasa Katana 3.0 that this sword was created from).
The original order details as ordered by the customer are presented below:
i5 Iron & Gold Fittings (Cloud Dragon themed tsuba)
M5 - Gold Silk Ito
White Rayskin Panels
Red and White Sageo
S10 Red and Black Speckled Saya
