This is the ko katana version companion sword for our Kaze katana. Material and design made to be a matching set with our black ito version of the Kaze Katana... Sharpened functional cutter. It features a 10.5" tsuka and uses double mekugi.

Key feature of this particular ko katana is the differentially clay hardened blade with the visible natural hamon as is on our Kaze Katana. As is with our latest version of the Kaze, this sword uses a double mekugi with one being bamboo, and the other being copper.

New tsuka core with a slightly shallower same channel for improved durability. New synthetic sageo much more durable and substantial than the old cotton ito.

For detailed description of the blade and the steel, please refer to our Kaze katana.

The Kaze (Wind) Ko Katana is the result of a clay tempered (hardened) blade using our 9260 Silicon Alloy Spring Steel. This sword is made as a companion sword to the full length Kaze Katana, similar to the Kaze Wakizashi, but with a longer nakago and tsuka (handle). It is finished with a replica of an antique blackened cast steel tsuba and uses the new bamboo/copper mekugi pin.
