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.
In true Ryumon 'have it your way' style the sword is available with 4 styles of iron Mokko tsuba with traditional Japanese themes (these are based on actual antique tsuba) and your choice of either black or sandy brown cotton or comfortable on the hands black suede and is completed with a classic black lacquered saya.
Like the standard version it was developed working closely with Mr. Sung and his team, utilizes only the BEST available options to ensure you get the best looking, best performing cutting Katana possible - fully guaranteed to not only meet but EXCEED your expectations. With only the best options available, it is practically impossible to design a bad looking sword. Just pick the components that you like the look of best and let us make it real for you!
But don't make the mistake of thinking these swords are just pretty ornaments - these are serious, practical blades that are surprisingly robust yet traditionally constructed and at our special introductory price, are some of the best cutting swords available anywhere near this price point. The ability to customize them is indeed just a very special free bonus!!
The process is slightly different than the Ryujin T10 Custom Katana line (parts are not interchangable as they blades have a slightly different blade shape and thickness) - just pick one of the 12 possible configurations using the drop down menu. It is set on black cotton with the Matsu (pine) tsuba by default - just select which combination you would like and we will ship it straight out to you.
NOTE: Stock levels are frequently updated - if a particular configuration is not available the system will not process the order and display the status in the shopping cart.

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 :)
