Folded Steel Blade

The Orchid Katana is as quick as it is beautiful with a relatively light blade of folded K120C and striking koshirae. The hamon is prominent and the hada shows distinct layers. High quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka, and the tsuka-ito and sageo is woven from premium Japanese cotton. The tsuba is of blackened iron, with an Orchid and Butterfly decoration inlaid in silver, brass and copper. The saya is deeply lacquered in blue with buffalo horn koiguchi and kurikata. The fuchi, kashira and kojiri are crafted in bronzed iron with silver and gold detailing. The habaki is of one-piece brass construction. The blade features a medium-length (chu) kissaki.
