Black Tiger; Martial Arts Grade Cutting Katana

The darkened sword theme is accented by the silver colored menuki and fuchi/kashira featuring a Tiger stalking its prey. 

The Black Tiger Katana is part of the Okuden collection from Kaneie, sword designed for Japanese swordsmanship practitioners looking for a traditional blade. The blade is differentially hardened T10, hand polished in the traditional manner to a utilitarian martial arts polish. This level of polish skips the very costly last steps in performing a full art polish. The result is a blade and edge well suited to cutting practice on a variety of traditional targets.
