Amazing Value - 9260 Spring Steel Steel Blade with Natural Hamon
Finding a genuine 9260 Spring Steel Katana these days can be a real challenge. It is a notoriously difficult steel to work with - but due to rising demand and almost no supply, there have been several 'boutique forges' claiming to make 9260 Spring Steel swords - but to date none of them have been telling the truth, telling their customers they can buy it when in fact they are using 1060 carbon steel (and in some cases, 1045! If it sounds too good to be true..)
To put and end to this nonsense, industry innovators Ryujin Swords have released the 'Kaze' Series - true 9260 Spring Steel blades, differentially hardened with a real hamon temper line, at the best price they can be made for these days..
While differentially hardened 9260 blades are not designed to flex and spring back to true (the harder edge and softer spine mean that the edge and spine bend at different rates) the overall effect is a very SOLIDLY BUILT Katana that performs and cuts like the historical originals. Available with 5 different choices of fitting sets.
