Symbolic of the straight growth of the bamboo, the Citadel Bamboo Katana has a small blade deflection. Handle end (Kashira) and handle clamp (Fuchi) are made of iron, covered with a simple but elegant, high-gloss black varnish. Also made from iron is the tsuba, which is not casted but made by hand. It shows like the butt cap and the grip clamp finely engraved bamboo themes. Decorations (Menuki) of silvered bronze offer a nice contrast to the dark handle wrap (Tsuka-Maki) and emphasize the graceful whole.
Blade in Shinogi Zukuri style. Forged integral Habaki made of silvered and engraved copper. Seppa made from silvered brass. Handle wrapped in black, Japanese silk in classic Hineri-Maki style. Black, high-polish sheath (Kuroro style).
The razor sharp blades are made of 1075 carbon steel. Under traditional clay coating differentiated hardened to approx. 60 HRC at the cutting edge and approx. 40 HRC at the back of the blade. By the skills of the polisher the masterly work of the blacksmith comes fully to bear. A mirror-polished surface, as well as a clearly recognizable temper line (hamon) are the result.
To every sword belongs a high-quality sword bag, and a padded Cordura bag for transport next to a production certificate.
