Ryan1168 is one of our midlevel swords. The blade is of a shinogi-zukuri geometry and in a gyaku kobuse style of lamination. The edge is made of 1095 high carbon steel while the core is made of a softer steel. The blade is differentially-hardened with a natural hamon and can take on hard targets. The tsuka is made of hardwood, fully-wrapped with real, white samegawa or rayskin and black, synthetic, silk ito in hinerimaki wrap. A tsuka core which is fully wrapped with rayskin is stronger than one which only has rayskin panels.
