OVERVIEW

Cold Steel uses only traditional materials for the fittings of their Japanese Imperial swords. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar) and Kashira (pommel) are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver brass.

The Habaki (blade collar) of this O Tanto is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and the hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances this traditional sword's appearance.

Features a fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blade, heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove). Comes with black lacquered scabbard and a blue-violet cover bag.
