OVERVIEW

When you hold a Shikoto Hammer-Forged Longquan Master sword in your hand, you are holding the same weapon a warrior used more than 2,500 years ago. Using methods used by Bronze Age swordsmiths, the 49-3/8” 1060 high carbon steel blade has been hammer-forged and clay tempered to produce a visible hamon line. Differential hardening gives this magnificent blade a harder cutting edge and a softer spine, which is the hallmark of a high-quality weapon.

The tsuba and handle fittings on this Longquan Master Nodachi are solid iron. The wooden handle has traditional cord wrapping over genuine, tea-dyed rayskin. A black lacquered and polished wooden scabbard with cord-wrapping houses the blade. Also included with the Shikoto Longquan Master Nodachi is a certificate of authenticity with forging specifications, signed by the master swordsmith who crafted the blade. Shikoto Hammer-Forged Longquan Master Wakizashi and Shikoto Hammer-Forged Longquan Master Tanto are also available.
