A grade higher than the T10 Ryujin Custom Katana - this sword has a 5160 Spring Steel blade with a long working life, as 5160 Spring Steel is designed to last longer than any other type of spring or tool steel. The steel has been differentially hardened with a prominent Suguha (straight line) clear hamon with an edge hardness of HRC 60 and spine hardness HRC 42.

To compliment the premium quality steel and the clean natural hamon, it is decked out in pine tree (Matsu) themed iron tsuba and matching fuchigashira set for maximum strength, and a super tight black cotton ito wrapped using hishigami - almost unheard of at this kind of price point!

Everything about this build is designed for frequent use over an extended period - in short, these are serious, practical blades that are surprisingly robust yet traditionally constructed and marked down to sell out fast.

Didn’t take long at all to get here, I’ve had the t10 model for a year now, this 5160 spring steel model is a much much better sword to me especially for the price. The tsuka....is great! Hishigami WERE used, I’ve never seen that before, so it’s a plus, the diamonds are very even and the same looks a hundred times better than my t10 model, the cotton ito is also light years ahead of the rayon/poly/silk, it is also tighter than the t10, I cannot move the ito or menuki even with force, the Kashira IS movable but with how tight the ito is it’s not going ANYWHERE. The Habaki on mine is a little off, but I can always get another, no problem, made of copper, with a polish would look great. The blade is nicely shaped, the Suguha Hamon is a bit too close to the edge in my opinion, it looks a little small imo. For this price though, it also has a good looking kissaki, a geometric Yokote, blade is so sharp it’s just.., really nice saya too, the paint is very durable. Tsuba/Fuchi/kashira are all very good looking, the sageo is also very thick, not like a shoelace, over all I think this sword is a great value for what you get (swordbox/swordbag/cleaning kit included as well with my order) very happy :)
