The Kikusui katana is an original creation by Murasame. Tsuba represents half a chrysanthemum flower on water.
Its unokubi-zukiri style blade is made of San-maï 1095/1060 steel.
It benefits from a clay tempering with a Choji style hamon.
The sharpening is razor sharp. The polishing and finishing with azuya stones reveals a very beautiful grain of steel very pleasant to look at.
The fittings are from Japan with a beautifully crafted forged steel tsuba, a silver fushi-kashira set. The menuki are very thin and elegant.
The tsuka is braided with a very beautiful Japanese cotton. The sageo is also from Japan. All the assembly and adjustment part is the work of the Japanese Saber Workshop, our partner.
