Wakizashi T10 MARU HAMON
Find our catalog at the bottom of this page
This range of wakizashi starts with the T10/C105 (more information). They are of high range marus which have been treated by a thermal process. In fact, a clay mixture is applied on the blade, thin at the sharp edge. It is warmed at 800° before being quenched in water. This violent cooling produces martensite where the clay, in a thin layer, cannot protect the blade. So the sharp edge becomes very hard, but the other part of the bade stays supple enough to absorb the blows always with efficiency. These blades can have a better sharp. The hamon is easily seen, it draws a line near the edge (see the picture).
Where do our sabers come from?

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.
Of course our sabers are not nihontos (realized by Old Masters in Japan) of which price reaches some dozens thousand €/$. The tsubas are molded, and we do not assume any ritual to give a soul to the katana. We offer this kind of katana (real Shinsakutos) in the menu "Items/Nihontos" of the site. 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.
