Differentially hardened 65mn Spring Steel blade with enhanced choji style hamon temper line and solid brass fittings. MSRP $259.99
The Choji Tsunami Katana by Ryujin Swords is an attractive, fully functional cutting sword with attractive brass fittings in a classic 'tsunami' theme suitable for the dojo, display or the backyard.
Made from 65mn Spring Steel (a hard wearing manganese steel), the blade of this sword has been differentially hardened to produce a genuine hamon. It is then hand polished and carefully acid etched to bring out the detail that is normally only possible using Japanese fingerstones. The end result is a lively Choji hamon pattern that highlights the interplay between the yakiba (the hardened part) and the rest of the blade - giving it the hard and sharp cutting edge the Katana is well known for as well as the shock absorbing qualities necessary to survive the heat of battle.
The sword is complimented by a saya with Tsumakure (red accent) finish on glossy black with two toned sageo.
