Skyjiro Forges Kokoro Katana is a fully functional hand-made pure oroshigane folded steel katana. Every piece of this sword from form to function is top quality including the smallest details of using specially select premium aged bamboo for the mekugi pins. The blade on the Kokoro is made from true sword steel known as Oroshigane. Many katana use blends of modern carbon steels which is also good for it's intended purpose but this sword is hand forged from a billet of pure carbonized iron creating 9600 layers of sword perfection wrapping around a folded iron core. A blade like this can only be produced by a master sword smith and it earns it's place in the Imperial class of sword. Skyjiro has made the claim that these blades are the "Highest Quality ever produced" which we will not dispute. This blade has a traditional Japanese differential temper producing a genuine hamon with a softer spine for shock absorption and a razor sharp hard cutting edge with a superior edge retention. Unlike most katana this sword is backed by Skyjiro's guarantee that they are not only suitable for soft tatami but also for cutting bamboo.
The tsuka is constructed using a premium hard wood wrapped in a quality hand selected ray skin. The tsuka-ito is made from the finest Japanese silk imported directly from Japan to perfectly compliment the refinements and hand finished details of this elite katana. The saya is made from a premium selected hardwood with a ray skin inlay. The saya fittings are all carved from a polished water buffalo horn. It is finished in a deep black lacquer and finished with a Japanese silk sageo. This sword is designed for a master of tameshigiri or a collector of fine swords. All the materials used in it's creation are hand selected for each individual sword to ensure the best of quality. This piece was designed and balanced to handle as a superior cutting sword.
