Each piece in the Great Wave range (Katana SH5004, Wakisashi SH5002, & Tanto SH5022) has a hand-forged T10 high-carbon steel blade (nagasa) and is differentially tempered using a traditional claying method. The tsuba, fuchi, & kashira are made of black iron and marked with the Tomoe crest (mon). The temper lines (hamon) are evident and prominent. Each piece has a deeply lacquered black saya with a one-piece brass habaki construction. Genuine ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka, and the tsuka-ito and sageo are made of premium woven Japanese black cotton. The katana (SH5004) and wakizashi (SH5002) are constructed with a large o-kissaki and are ideal for cutting exercises (tameshigiri). The handle on the tanto (SH5022) is an attractive ribbed buffalo horn. A great set for those interested in the art of Kenjutsu.
