Tiger Classic katana (虎刀)
The Tiger classic has a hand forged and folded blade
made of ASSAB-K120C powder steel. It is
differentially tempered to produce an HRC60 edge and a
HRC40 back with a distinctive hamon. The Saya is
deeply lacquered in black with inlaid brass bamboo
leaves. The ray skin used on the tsuka is of the highest
quality, and the tsuka-ito and sageo are woven from best
quality Japanese cotton. The Fuchi, Kashira, Kojiri,
Koiguchi and Kurigata are all made from blackened
bronzed iron, selectively detailed in gold. The Tsuba is
made from blackened iron, with a tiger inlaid in brass.
The Habaki is of one-piece brass construction. The blade
is grooved on both sides, with a short Kissaki. The golden menuki are images of bamboo and its leaves.
