Product Description

The Modern Handmade Japanese Oban Burgundy Shirasaya Katana is constructed of 1090 carbon steel that has been clay tempered which makes the steel harder and enables the blade to retain a sharp edge.  This modern katana is named for Oban Japanese warriors.  Oban means Great Watch.  These warriors were a contingent of troops dedicated to protecting the home provinces  and safeguarding the throne. This sword has a sleek design with clean lines creating beauty in its simplicity. Traditionally the Shirasaya design was intended primarily for storage. They used to transport high quality blades to and from the polishers, or for shipping a blade to a collector who intended to install their own custom fittings. The tsuka (handle) and the saya (scabbard) on this Shirasaya are wooden with a burgundy finish meeting in perfect symmetry. The sword is full tang and double pegged.  If you look closely to the tsuka you can see both pegs. When sheathed, this sword looks like a solid piece of wood, save the wooden tang pegs. This piece comes slightly oiled to prevent rusting and prolong the life of the blade.  A black sword bag will be included with the sword.
