Cold Steel Warrior Chisa Katana

(Ref: CS-88BCK)

The Japanese swords of the Emperor Series have proven, since their initial introduction almost five years ago, to be quite popular with many of our customers. Still, we are aware that there are some people who want a functional sword but hope to find one at a more affordable price. Our Warrior Series addresses this problem directly. In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on our Emperor Swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish.

The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Emperor counterparts. Like the Emperor swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you're in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you'll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a black lacquered scabbard and a blue/violet cover bag.

Key Features

  • 1055 Carbon Steel Blade
  • Black Lacquered Wood Saya
  • Functional Affordable Sword

Attributes

  • This katana is sharp.
  • This katana is fully functional.
  • This katana is hand-forged.

Cheness Yamakami Ko-Katana

(Ref: C104)

The Yamakami Ko Katana is part of Cheness' Specialised Goza Cutter Series of swords; it's been specially designed to be a high-performing cutting sword, handling goza mats, tatami omote with ease and in the right hands, bamboo too. The outstanding cutting ability is achieved by using Cheness' own 9260 silicon alloy carbon spring steel and combining it with a thinner blade profile, thus reducing the angle of attack between the blade and the mat, but by giving it a broader blade, you still keep the strength you need to make heavy cuts.

The Yamakami Ko Katana has brown cotton tsuka-ito over genuine ray skin. The tsuba is an attractive blackened steel silhouette of Mount Fuji which perfectly complements the high-gloss lacquered saya. As with all Cheness swords the Yamakami Ko Katana has a full tang and is double pegged.

Key Features
* Designed specifically for cutting
* 9260 silicon alloy carbon spring steel blade
* Attractive Mount Fuji tsuba

Attributes
* This katana is sharp
* This katana is fully functional
* This katana is hand-forged.
