Katanas T10 MARU HAMON
Find our catalog at the bottom of this page
This range of katana begins with the T10 / C105 hamon sabers. These are marus higher than the usual 1095 (see information T10 / C105) and which have undergone a heat treatment (selective quenching). Indeed, a mixture of clay is applied on the katana, not very thick at the level of the cutting edge. This is heated to 1472°F before soaking it in water. This sudden cooling forms martensite where there is no clay to isolate it.Thus, the edge of the katana becomes extremely hard, keeping the rest of the blade more flexible, in order to absorb the blows always as effectively. These katanas can be sharpened much better.

The hamon is easily visible, it forms a line at the edge (see the photograph), beware of false hamons, or hamons made by modern cold air process which are unfortunately common. Swords with formidable edge and high carbon content, for the practice of martial arts or budo in dojo (iaido, kendo, tameshigiri with curvature adapted to draw easily), hardened steel blade for exceptional cuts of tatami and bamboo!

From where are coming our sabers ?

Our katanas and Japanese weapons are elaborated in our forges, all of them. There, for some
dozens years, experimented craftsmen are dedicating themselves to create Japanese forged
steel sabers , and give free rein to their imagination. We verify strictly that every katana is
forged according to the rules of that art. Moreover all of our high quality katanas are forged
and polished by craftsmen having at least a twenty years experience.
Obviously these katanas are not nihontos (Old Master's; katanas provided by Japan) the price
of them may reach some dozens thousands of euros/dollars.
The tsubbas are molded and the ritual in order to give a soul to the katana is not made.

We propose this kind of katana (genuine Shinsakuto) in the associated column. Nevertheless we take care to a controlled manufacture, using old and modern processes, and respecting what represent the katana. Details for the materials used are given on the technical data sheet of the saber. The polishing is hand-made, but with stones, as requested, and not by a grindstone machine ("hand-made by a grindstone machine" is a funny and usual feature of training katanas). A blade to be drawn and handled cautiously, real blade symbol of the Samurai.
Optional : display stand and maintenance kit.
