Completely Hand-Made

This is the first of the Limited Edition katana from Citadel Knives and Swords. Citadel's swords and knives are completely hand-made one off customs made entirely in their small shop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We've asked them to make for us a few in the same style, but made in the same way as their custom swords. Crafted individually from start to finish, each one is of course a bit unique in it's own way. Limited to 100 swords, each is signed by the smith on the nakago with the sword number and comes with a matching certificate. This is an extremely well balanced sword in an ocean theme, with a nami or wave tsuba and turbulent water fuchi and kashira. The blade is hand forged and differentially hardened DNH7 high carbon steel. Each blade is hand polished using traditional stones and powders to produce an authentic look. This sword features a full length bohi or fuller to lighten and balance the blade. The hi continues through the habaki and into the nakago, with the copper habaki forged to follow the hi. The tsuka is carved to each individual sword ensuring a tight friction fit with a full same-gawa wrap. The ito or handle wrapping is natural white silk imported from Japan, the ito is dyed with tea to give it a slight tan color that will darken a bit with use. The saya is lacquered in a deep midnight blue with a same-gawa or sting ray skin wrap. Each saya is carved for the individual sword ensuring a proper snug fit.
