Orchid Katana Samurai Sword
Our Orchid set is as quick as it is beautiful with a relatively light blade of folded K120C and striking koshirae
Each piece in the Orchid Series has a hand-forged & folded K120C powder steel blade, differentially tempered using a traditional claying method to produce an HRC60 edge, HRC40 back.
The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent and the grain pattern (hada) shows distinct layers. The saya are deeply lacquered in blue. High quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka, and the tsuka-ito and sageo on all three pieces are woven from premium Japanese cotton.
The tsuba of the katana and wakizashi is of blackened iron, with an Orchid and Butterfly decoration inlaid in silver, brass and copper. The scabbard mouth (koiguchi) and cord knob (kurikata) are of buffalo horn, and the fuchi, kashira and kojiri are of bronzed iron with silver and gold detailing.
The blade collar (habaki) is a one-piece brass construction. The katana and wakizashi feature a medium-length (chu) kissaki. * Hand forged and folded steel blade
