John Lee Hannya Katana

Masterpiece of Asian forge- craft

– The swords’ blades are hand-forged out of 1095 carbon steel
– The sharpened blades have been differentially hardened in traditional kind as
a result of applied clay and they’ve got an original Hamon-line
– 60 HRC at the ha and 40 HRC at the mune
– The wooden hilts (Tsuka) are completed with original ray skin (Same)
– The hilt-wrappings (Tsuka-Ito) of black cotton are applied in traditional kind
– Two Menukis were put into the hilts
– The handle-ends are particularly long and fastened to the hilt with 2 pins of
bamboo (Mekugi)
– The sheaths (Saya) are made out of wood
– Manufacturing followed historical examples

It’s the cutting-test Katana with complex applications. The fittings are decorated
with the Hannya mask. The Hannya mask has its source in the Japanese
NOH-theatre and is probably the best-known mask. It is symbol for the woman
that transformed into a demon because of her rage and jealousy.
