'Yugen Mist' Hand Forged Minamoto Katana in 1095 with a clay tempered blade.

This hand forged katana is heat tempered using the clay tempering process. This involves smearing clay on the blade during heating and quenching to offer a uniform hardness to the blade and remove weak points which can occur when the heating or quenching is less even. It also allows the smith, by placing the clay thicker on certain parts of the blade, to make the edge harder (thus more able to keep the famous razor sharp samurai edge) and the rest of the blade lesshard but more able to absorb impact. The wooden handle is wrapped in genuine Stingray skin (Samekawa) before the traditional cotton handle wrapping (Tsukamaki). The wooden box, silk sleeve, cleaning kit and stand are included.
