Meijin Folded Steel Katana

The Meijin Sword is an amazing testament to the quality produced by Mantis Swords. The blade is forged-folded T10 high carbon steel with bo-hi (grooves) on both sides. This allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung. The blade is differentially tempered using a traditional claying method and has a beautiful grain pattern (hada) with visible layers. The tsuka (handle) is wrapped in genuine rayskin and the tsuka-ito is premium black Japanese cotton. The black iron square tsuba, fuchi and kashira are done in a turbulent ocean motif. The habaki is a one-piece brass construction. The saya is beautifully lacquered with alternating matt/gloss stripes the entire length of the scabbard. The sageo (belt wrap) is black cotton. The Meijin represents the pinnacle of production for Iaito swords.
