Cheness Kaze Katana with Brown Tsuka-ito

(Ref: C119)

The Kaze (Wind) is the result of many popular requests for a clay tempered (hardened) blade using our 9260 Silicon Alloy Spring Steel. The blade body of the Kaze is a hand clayed and differentially heat treated 9260 silicon carbon spring steel. It is finished with a replica of an antique blackened cast steel tsuba submitted to us. This steel is stronger than our Kanbai katana, but does not have the same resiliency of the through hardened 9260. The gain from the clay hardening is that the blade has a smooth and elegant natural hamon (9260 does not generate the same hamon as the Kanbai katana).

The natural hamon on the Kaze is more defined than those on the Kanbai katana. This is due to 2 factors: 9260 reacts to clay hardening differently than 1045... There are less activities on the border of the hamon, but a more distinct pooling of the nie crystal, making for a cleaner, better defined hamon line. Secondly, the kaze has an ever-so-slightly better polish for the purpose of bringing out the natural hamon.
