Scratch & Dent FOLDED Forge Direct Elite T10 Custom Katana 21911Be the first one to write a review
Differentially Hardened T10 Tool Steel Master Smith Katana - subtly folded (no longer available) and stunningly beautiful overall design. (valued at $998.99).
Scratch and Dent Issue: None. The order was rejected by the customer due to Covid related issues in 2020.
This was a Forge Direct T10 tool steel Katana that was sadly abandoned by the customer during extensive delays caused from Covid related shutdowns.. It is quite rare as we only briefly offered the premium folded steel option but was deemed too cost prohibitive to continue (the cost added nearly $300 to the base price!) - but here you can effectively get it for FREE!
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 original order details as ordered by the customer are presented below:
29" (73.6) Blade
iT06 Iron Sukashi Fittings
M7 - Brown Silk Ito
G5 Brown Silk Sageo
S3 Red with Gold Maki-e Saya
Forge Direct Optional Extra - Premium Folded Steel Option
