An amazing deal from Ryujin - this is a monotempered 1045 carbon steel blade mounted in high quality black wood fittings at a price almost anyone can afford.

The blade is the most common type, Shinogi Zukuri, and features a full length bo-hi (fuller) with the weight of the sword itself an incredibly fast and light 1.6lbs.

While we generally do not recommend Shirasaya swords for cutting out of the box by inexperienced sword enthusiasts (as without a hand guard,there is a slight danger of the hand slipping onto the blade and the wood is not reinforced and may split apart) this sword is perfect as a display piece, as the foundation for a DIY remounting project (it can be stripped down and has one mekugi peg like a traditional katana), or just a relatively inexpensive, but real carbon steel blade that you can use to experiment on - testing sword sharpening techniques and polishing before attempting it on a more expensive blade.

However you decide to use it, and no matter which way you look at it, it's a bargain piece of properly tempered 1045 carbon steel.
