The Koto katana is a beautiful full tang Shinogi-zukuri Japanese sword made by BushiSwords. It is traditionally handforged in clay tempered T-10 steel and polished to a razor sharp edge. It is strong and highly suitable for cutting exercises.
Because of the differentially clay tempering, the Koto katana has a very hard cutting edge and a flexible back. This allows this katana to cut harder targets but also handle the impact of the strike. This tempering also creates an authentic hamon (temperline).
The Koto katana has fittings in black quality steel. The tsuka (handle) is made in wood tightly wrapped with real samé (rayskin) and Japanese black ito. The sheath is made in engraved hardwood finished with water buffalo horn.
This sword is highly suitable for cutting exercises.
