Katana Description

Historically, the katana sword (also known and samurai sword) were one of the Japanese weapons that were used by the samurai of ancient and feudal Japan.  The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance with a curved, single-edged blade, a circular or squared guard, and long two-handed grip.  Western historians have said that katana were among the finest cutting weapons in world military history.  Katana defines a sword of this description that longer than 24".  This katana measures 40.5" and is made from blended high carbon 1095 steel with brass bolsters. The handle is wrapped in red.

Blade Materials

The sword is made from 1095 steel.  1095 steel is the highest carbon steel commonly used in swords.  It has a carbon level of .95% which is one of the highest carbon levels for any type of steel.  The most common high carbon swords are 1045 steel which only have .45% carbon content in the steel.  1095 steel is known for its ability to maintain an edge and is an incredibly hard steel.  1095 steel typically has a hardness of 56-58 HRC.  The problem with 1095 steel is that it is lacks flexibility.  Flexibility is critical to sword making so the sword doesn't break on high impact collisions.  To increase the flexibility of this steel, clay tempering is used to soften the steel.  The clay is thickly painted on the blade to insulates the parts of the blade that we want softened so they cool more slowly during the quenching process.  In this case, the clay is painted everywhere except the edge.  This clay tempering process keeps the strong and sharp edge of the blade while allowing the rest of the blade to be more flexible.  This process optimizes the strength of the blade and maximizes its sharpness creating an incredible strong blade and sharp edge.
