Kambun Katana 27 III - more coming Aug 2017

235.00 295.00

A new Katana style with 27" blade will be coming in July/August 2017

KAMBUN KATANA 27 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 slight curve on the blade was possibly influenced by the fencing schools of the era. The folded steel carbon steel blade is 27" long with a straight hamon/tempered edge. The use of 1060and 9250 steel produce a very strong blade with visible layers of steel laminations.

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

$295
