Hand Carved

In 1876, the Samurai were banned from carrying their swords. This attempt to end a thousand year tradition was not received well by the proud warrior class and the "stick katana" was born. Innocuous walking canes now concealed the revered blades, but the katana lived on. The Bamboo Stick Katana combines an artfully carved bamboo scabbard and handle with a functional blade (nagasa) that is hand-forged in 1065 high-carbon steel and is differentially hardened using a traditional claying method. The edge hardness and resilient blade body produced by this technique embody the true secret of the Samurai sword.
