Katana Kikusui
Reference : P04KHJ10
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.
The saya is made of wood with stingray skin inlay with koiguchi-kurikata and koigiri in brown buffalo horn.
The Kikusui katana is a very beautiful piece, elegant and efficient.
