The Ryumon Folded Dragon Katana has a hand forged and folded AISI 1060 high carbon steel blade tempered in the traditional clay method, which produces a hard (and extremely sharp) Ha (Cutting edge), and a resilient spine. A forge of masters who have been making swords for over 2000 years forge and polish the sword to reveal it’s beautiful Hamon (temper line) and Hada (grain pattern). Each copper tsuba is traditionally detailed with a dragon motif. The wood saya is deeply lacquered with a glossy black finish and is tied with an imported Japanese cotton sageo. The tsuka (handle) is covered with authentic Same (rayskin) and imported Japanese cotton.
