Menkyo Shuro Tsuru Choji katana for iai

€ 1,750.00

Sold


In terms or aesthetics as well as practical use, this is probably as good as it gets. The 2013 Choji Iai shinken project is a prestigious undertaking in combining a unique temper line pattern with practical iai use.

In short, long swords are difficult to harden, sword with choji hamon are also difficult to harden. Adding a bo-hi will also make it more difficult to harden.

Needless to say making these was quite difficult but the results are phenomenal! The perfect sword for the advanced martial arts practitioner!
