Product Description

Citadel's swords and knives are completely hand-made one off customs made entirely in their small shop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We've asked them to make for us a few swords in the same style, but made in the same way as their custom swords. Crafted individually from start to finish, each one is of course a bit unique in it's own way. Limited to 25 tanto, each is signed by the smith on the nakago with the sword number and comes with a matching certificate.

The blade is hand forged and differentially hardened DNH7 high carbon steel. Each blade is hand polished using traditional stones and powders to produce an authentic look. This sword features a full length bo-hi or fuller to lighten and balance the blade. The hi continues through the habaki and into the nakago, with the copper habaki forged to follow the hi.

The tsuka is carved to each individual sword ensuring a tight friction fit with a full same-gawa wrap. The ito or handle wrapping is natural white silk imported from Japan, the ito is dyed with tea to give it a slight tan color that will darken a bit with use. 

The saya is lacquered in a deep midnight blue with a same-gawa or sting ray skin wrap. Each saya is carved for the individual sword ensuring a proper snug fit.

A weapon of war foremost, new individual details in this sword present themselves with each viewing.

AMAZING quality!

I have owned many Japanese style blades, from many different forges... This is my first Citadel blade and the quality is just amazing! It's perfect! The focus on the little details really stands out. Even compared to some of the expensive Hanwei options (which can be very hit or miss), I have never seen quality like this from anything made outside of Japan. Buy a Citadel blade and you won't be disappointed! I ordered the Lotus Katana and am really eager to see how their full size swords compare. I'm sure it'll be perfect too!
