Kambun Katana 25 III- more coming Aug 2017

225.00 285.00

A new style Katana with 25" blade  will be available sometime in July/August 2017

KAMBUN KATANA 25 III
This is the 3rd generation of Kambun style katana from Kris Cutlery. The fittings and overall appearance are clean and focused, with a high quality folded steel blade and reasonably priced.

The Kambun style blade became popular during Japan's Edo period (1603-1868). The subtle curve on the blade was likely influenced by the fencing schools of the era. The folded steel carbon steel blade is 25" long with a straight hamon/tempered edge. The use of 1060and 9250 steel produced a very strong blade with visible layers of steel laminations.

At the base of the blade is a brass habaki. The pierced through tsuba has floral designs with copper finish. The hardwood handle has ray skin panels and is wrapped with black poly blend ito.  The floral style menuki has a dark antique finish. Both the fuchi-kashira (ferrule – pommel) and tsuba have a similar finish. The wood scabbard is lacquered black. Comes with a black bag.
