Ronin Katana Dojo-Pro Dancing Crane O-Katana

(Ref: RK-DP-OK9)

Each sword in Ronin's Dojo Pro Series are from the Dotanuki (Torso Cutter) school of bladesmithing. Dotanuki swords quickly gained great popularity among the warrior class due to their superior cutting ability. The Dotanuki smiths cared little for aesthetics, but instead focused on strength, sharpness, and durability in the field. They were renowned for producing blades which would endure the harshest conditions, the most difficult battle field situations and survive to return to battle day after day, year after year.

Ronin's Dotanuki Katana are through-hardened 1060 Steel and are extensively tested against bamboo, and triple tatami mats.

Cheness 30" Nagasa 9260 Spring Steel Katana

(Ref: C114)

This is our first 30 inch nagasa 9260 spring steel katana. The additional 2" length from a standard katana makes this large sword perfect for large users. The trial run is to find out whether there is a market for such a sword or not. The sword is a better cutter than the standard 28" blade. The blade will ONLY be constructed of our through hardened 9260 Silicon Spring Steel. We wanted our longer sword to use only the more rugged material that can resist bending because of the additional weight/force exerted over the longer length. This is particularly important as the sword will only be available with bo-hi to keep the weight manageable.

Kissaki is made larger at a full 2 inches to maintain a better porportion with the overall blade. Until we have determined whether to include this in our regular line or not, we have updated this sword with the blackened classic crane tsuba on this sword. The handle is our most improved area from prior production of swords. Aside from the ito color being blue, the wood used for the tsuka has been upgraded to a harder material and two channels have been carved on the tsuka ho to seat the same. Also, the material used for the ito is a tighter weave of cotton and the wrap is much tighter than previous swords.

Key Features
* Designed specifically for cutting
* 9260 silicon alloy carbon spring steel blade
* Use for more rugged material

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