The Dokuji nami katana (sanmai) is a fully functional Japanese katana and not a replica, it is considered a weapon and it is extremely sharp. This sword can easily sever a 7" thick bamboo with single stroke. The Furui shishi katana can be completely disassembled for full maintenance.
This is a Thaitsuki sword and we believe in quality over quantity. Thaitsuki Nihonto swords are hand-made, fully functional, and "battle ready" katanas. They are best suited for practice in all sword arts, completion cutting, and collecting. The Japanese Katanas, hand-made by Thaitsuki Nihonto, are of the highest quality, traditionally made and perfected for over 400 years. Thaitsuki Nihonto has been producing Japanese swords for professional collectors and practitioners of Iaido, Iaijutsu, and Kenjutsu for over 400 years!
The blade of the Dokuji nami katana (sanmai) is handmade and forged from special high carbon Japanese steel (DC53) making a strong, flexible blade with a bo hi (groove). With 2 different HRC grades on the back (40) and on the edge (60) the blade is very strong.
The tsuka (handle) is covered in white same (ray skin) and the Tsuka Ito (handle wrap) is best japanese blue silk 10mm wide silk. The tsuba is made from copper. The koiguchi is made from real buffalo horn and the handmade saya was made from dried poplar wood. The habaki and the seppa are also made from 92,5% silver and the habaki shows a sakura motif. At the end of the saya is a kojiri made from real buffalo horn.
Fuchi and Kashira are detailed in gold and polished. The menuki are made from 92,5% silver and show a pair of fish.
This samurai sword would be an incredible addition to your samurai sword collection. This fully functional sword will stand apart from anything else that you may already own.
