Meijin Katana

Swords » Katana ID: SH5018

Information for Meijin Katana:

the Meijin Katana is an amazing testament to CAS Hanwei quality. The blade is forged-folded T10 high-carbon steel with grooves (bo-hi) on both sides of the blade, which makes for a lighter blade and audible feedback on the cutting stroke. The blade is differentially hardened using a traditional claying method and has a beautiful grain pattern (hada) with visible layers. The Meijin has a very sharp edge and is capable of light target cutting. The tsuka is wrapped in genuine ray skin (same) and the tsuka-ito is premium black Japanese cotton. The black iron square tsuba, fuchi, & kashira are finished in a “Turbulent Ocean” motif. The habaki is a one-piece brass construction. The saya is finished in a beautiful black matte/gloss striped finish extending the length of the scabbard and the sageo is black cotton. The Meijin Katana represents the pinnacle of production quality for Shinken.

Made by Hanwei.
