Hanwei Raptor Shinogi Zukuri Katana - SH2414
Hanwei Raptor Shinogi Zukuri Katana
The Raptor Shinogi-Zukuri blade, which has evolved as the most common Japanese katana blade design, provides both speed and cutting power. Featuring a distinct yokote, such blades were originally produced after the Heian period, around 987 AD. The blade of the Raptor katana is hand forged in 5160 high carbon steel and is specifically heat treated to produce very high resilience and greater tolerance to misdirected cuts than a conventionally differentially tempered blade. The blade geometry is configured to facilitate the cutting of both soft and semi hard materials without chipping, allowing the user a wider range of targets. Cotton wrapped tsuka. Tsuba, fuchi and kashira features a beautiful Raptor motif. Black matte finish wood saya. Comes with black sword bag.
