A masterless Samurai was called Rônin in ancient Japan. The story of the "47 Ronin" were famous in this context, which revenged the death of their Lord and proven unconditional loyalty to their master. The Citadel Ronin Katana impresses with its simple, traditional look. The handmade Tsuba, Fuchi and Kashira are made from painted iron. Blade in Shinogi Zukuri style with fuller (Bo-Hi) at the back of the blade. Forged integral Habaki made of copper. Handle wrapped in black, Japanese silk in classic Hineri-Maki style. Black, dull varnished sheath with shiny black varnish speckles (Kuroishime 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.
