Old Pine Katana

Aggressive Cutter

The Old Pine Katana features our tried and tested powdered steel used in all of our sword lines for the last decade. This steel has been durable and reliable. Our goal was to make a sword that was without peer in terms of performance but would still have a beautiful and somewhat traditional look. Since the sword is intended to be a strong workhorse that you can rely on day in and day out for years, the sword is mounted in an understated "pine" motif. The pine tree endures year round as it is an evergreen which befits the steel used for this fine and powerful katana that will never let you down. The blackened iron tsuba is a classic design picturing a pine tree and pine needles. The shape was chosen as it allows the swordsman to place the sword on the ground in front of them without worrying about the sword rolling. The fuchi kashira are also blackened iron with pine motifs. The menuki are gold gilded representations of pine cones. The green saya represents the year round green of the evergreen pine and sports understated hand-painted gold needles. The tsuka is wrapped in brown silk ito with blackened samekawa underneath. The sword has two mekugi and all saya parts are made of fine horn. The blade has light niku but is of moderate weight and dimensions with an extended chu kissaki and moderate sori. It is a very sharp blade that is an aggressive cutter that should handle any conventional cutting practice. It handles relatively lightly in the hands but of course balance will vary according to blade and tsuka length as chosen by the customer.
