Description

In an attempt to end a thousand year tradition . the Samurai were banned for carrying their swords in 1876. The proud warrior class did not support this decision. Thus . the "stick katana" came into being. The blade of the sword was hidden in an unsuspicious walking cane and continued the existence of the katana. This Bamboo Stick Katana features a hand-forged blade (nagasa) out of 1065 high-carbon steel that is hardened using a traditional claying method . different from other methods. The hardness of the edge and resilient blade body are a result of this technique and a proud secret of the Samurai sword. The blade is finished off with a skillfully carved bamboo handle and scabbard. Made by Hanwei. Key Features: * Hand forged and tempered blade * Hand carved * Genuine temper line Specifications: Blade length: 27 1/4"Handle length: 11 1/2"Overall length: 39 1/4"Weight: 1lb 13oz Point of Balance: 5 1/2"Width at Guard: 1.12"Width at Tip: .75"Thickness at Guard: .26"Thickness at Tip: .17"Sori: 3/4"Box height: 43 3/4"Box width: 5 1/2"

The Hobby Stone arrived perfectly yesterday and I've already got my castle mold created and can't wait to detail it. The cast feels very strong and it's bubble free.
