Hanwei Raptor Unokubi Zukuri Katana - SH2415
Hanwei Raptor Unokubi Zukuri Katana
The Raptor Unokubi-Zukuri (Cormorants Neck) blade design is patterned after the shape of the Naginata, the powerful long-handled weapon popular between the 12th and 14th centuries. Notable for the strongly relieved shinogi-ji and diamond-shaped kissaki, the Unokubi-Zukuri provides excellent balance in a strong cutting blade. 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.
