Kaneie Budo IV Tough Cutting Katana Sword

Tough, through-hardened practice / cutting samurai sword.

This sword features a no-frills but highly functional and well shaped set of furniture. The cotton ito is tight with well spaced diamond pattern over genuine ray skin.

The Batto Collection from Kaneie Sword Art feature a through-hardened blade of high carbon 1060 steel.

Through-hardening a sword blade (as opposed to the traditional differential hardening) makes an overall tougher blade that sacrifices the ultimate edge hardness and beauty of a hamon (temper line). But for pure utilitarian use and practice a well heat treated through-hardened blade is hard to beat.
