The Tiger Katana has a sharpened hand-forged and folded K120C powder steel blade with Bo-Hi and a short (Ko) Kissaki. The Tiger Katana finds its point of balance at 5 inches from the guard. The Saya is deeply lacquered in black, with inlaid 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 of the beautiful Katana is crafted from blackened iron, with a tiger inlaid in brass. The Habaki is of one-piece brass construction. Includes cleaning kit and cloth storage sleeve.
