1095 Shinogi-Zukuri Katana

This is a katana that I forged out a few years ago, and had originally planned on keeping for myself. With my current assignments with the Army, I won't have time to work much on very many projects in the close future.

I am offering this blade at a discount and it is ready to ship as is. The blade is currently in a 240 grit grinder finish, and ready for foundation stone work.

The blade is forged from my usual W1 round bar and fully heat-treated by myself in the traditional manner. The blade is currently in a binsui-do stone finish. The included copper habaki was also traditionally made by myself.
