Fire Snake katana


The BushiSwords Fire Snake katana is a beautiful and hand forged and hand polished Japanese sword. The impressive blade is made of T-10 high carbon steel. It was differentially hardened and clay tempered. This means that this Samurai sword has a very hard cutting edge and a more flexible back. This gives this katana superb cutting abilities and a very sharp edge that holds very well.

After the forging process, the blade was water quenched and was hand polished in 14 steps! This katana has a truly beautiful and authentic hamon (temper line). The blade is forged in Unokubi Zukuri style.

The Fire Snake katana is mounted with high quality fittings. The tsuba (guard), fuchi (sleeve) and kashira (buttcap) features a black snake.

The tsuka (handle) has genuine ray skin (Samegawa) and is wrapped around with a red cotton ito. The full tang construction is secured by two Mekugi (pegs). You can unassemle the blade.

The Saya (sheath) is made of hard wood. A high quality sageo wrapped around the kurigata (knob) makes the sheath complete.

The beautiful red colors and snake fittings give this katana its name.
