The Mayonaka Katana, as all Sokojikaras, was painstakingly handcrafted using only the finest materials, making it tough yet graceful. The katana has a hand-forged, 27 1/4” 1045 carbon steel blade that has been honed to a razor-sharp edge. Both the pommel and Musashi-style tsuba are solid brass, along with the brass habaki, from which the blade extends. The hardwood handle is wrapped in genuine rayskin and traditionally wrapped in black cord with complementing brass menuki. The 39 1/2” overall katana slides smoothly into a black lacquered hardwood scabbard with black cord-wrap accents.
