    Ryumon Samurai Sword Imperial Katana

    Welcome to the flagship model of the Ryumon Samurai Swords. The Imperial Katana is handcrafted by the sword makers over at the Ryumon forge who have been handforging katana for generations. It all starts with a hand forged and folded AISI 1060 High carbon steel blade.

    The blade is sharpened and hand polished to perfection leaving only a distinctly unique hamon. The tsuka is wrapped in authentic top grade rayskin and Japanese cotton.

    The Akagane (red copper) tsuba has an incredible look of design and authenticity. The wood saya is coated in rich black lacquer and has a rayskin covered throat.

    Ryumon Imperial Katana Features:

    Extreme high quality in fit and finish
    AISI 1060 Folded and differentially (clay) tempered high carbon steel blade
    Prominent hamon
    Top grade Rayskin and Japanese Cotton wrapped tsuka
    Akagane (red copper) Tsuba
    High gloss lacquered wood saya with rayskin covered throat and buffalo horn accents

    No box or paperwork. Cotton sword cover included. Never cut or used the blade.

    Paracord wrapped scabbard. Over 300 feet approximately of cord wrapped scabbard.

    Measurements:

    Blade: 29"
    Handle: 11"
    Overall: 41 1/2"
    Weight: 2.7 Lbs

    This is a fully Functional samurai sword. Very well taken care of.
    $400 cash. Lowballers will be ignored. I spent nearly full price on this. No shipping or wait.
    $550 trade value.

    Will listen to offers for trades, however mainly interested in selling. And it is brand new other than the wrap.




    Thread link to pics. Will post pictures of actual sword soon.

    Looks pretty; how does it cut? Has it ever been used? Melons, hams shoulders or what not?

    This one hasn't been used. And from the size of the blade and weight it will do medium cutting with ease.

    It is very pretty but very functional.
