Shikoto Longquan Master Katana, United Cutlery
When you hold a Shikoto Hammer-Forged Longquan Master sword in your hand, you are holding the same weapon a warrior used more than 2500 years ago.
Using methods used by Bronze Age swordsmiths, the approx. 69 cm long T10 high carbon steel blade has been hammer-forged and clay tempered to produce a visible hamon line. Differential hardening gives this magnificent sword a harder cutting edge and a softer spine, which is the hallmark of a high-quality weapon.
The Tsuba and handle fittings are of solid iron and the wooden handle has a traditional cord wrapping over genuine, tea-dyed ray skin. A black lacquered and polished wooden scabbard with cord-wrapping houses the blade.
Also included with the Shikoto Longquan Master Katana is a certificate of authenticity with forging specifications, signed by the master swordsmith who crafted the blade.
