Katana Shihozume
Reference : C18BRK822
SHIHOZUME: Blades have 5 ingots, mild steel core (1045), back and sides of hard steel (1060), edge of extra hard steel (1095).
The shihozume is a type of Japanese sword blade assembly similar to the Honsanmai. Like its counterpart, the shihozume requires the use of three different types of steel for making the blade: shigane, higane, and kawagane.
Kawagane steel, however, is added to the sides as well as the bottom of the blade. Because of this, it is more difficult to use than some of the other types of assembly, but the end result is a capable Japanese broadsword that can cut and flex without breaking under pressure.
