SG0070 Forged and folded 1065 Blade With Hamon
This durable cutter is a simple and cost effective design. The 28" blade with 10" tsuka has a wonderfully elegant design with a
elaborate pierced tsuba design tsuba with handsome fuchi kashira. The tsuka is wrapped in a deep red synthetic tsukaito. This is an elegant sword built
for performance as well. The saya is a simple black gloss with a matching black and red sageo. The finish is simple and understated but shows the 2200 layers of steel and a real hamon.
Like all swords in this line, the dimensions are fairly similar. Nagasa of around 28". Height at the machi (Motohaba) of
31mm with a motokasane (thickness) of 7.5mm. The blades taper nicely down to about 23mm (sakihaba) and
5mm (sakikasane, or thickness at the line that starts the tip). All blades have about a 5/8" even sori (curvature).
And each sword weighs about 2.25 pounds outside of the saya depending on the fittings and whether the sword has a bo-hi.
