Dynasty Forge Tamahagane Shobu Katana in Mokko Cherry Theme

Eligible for FREE Shipping
Orders Over $99. Details.

The Shobu (iris leaf) Katana, a reproduction of blades made in preparation of the Mongol invasion, provides an geometry optimized for cutting power. Featuring a diamond cross-section that flares at the Shinogi, the edge has a wider cutting angle, thus reinforcing the edge. The blade has an elegant sweeping tip without a Yokote, accentuated by a Suguha (straight) Hamon.

The 28.5" blade is hand-forged from Tamahagane iron-sand steel. The blade is differentially clay-tempered and hand-polished on imported Japanese stones, a process that is even more complex due to the diamond cross-section. The blade is fitted in an elegant Mokko cherry blossom Tsuba with matching Fuchi-Kashira. The 12.5" Tsuka is wrapped in black silk Ito over a pair of cherry blossom & bird Menuki. The Saya is finished in a deep black gloss 11 layer natural lacquer.

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
