Steel & tempering

Our Master iaito features a high quality blade that is handforged in folded high carbon steel. Is has been differentially tempered using clay to create a beautiful authentic hamon (temperline).

With this ancient technique, we make sure our BushiSwords are hard enough to face the target when cutting, but also flexible enough to handle the impact. This is what makes a Japanese sword so unique. But with this Samurai sword we go even further. We use different types of steel in a honsanmai lamination to make the strength of this katana even better.
