The miniature Katana is hand made from authentic materials.
The hilt is wood wrapped in ray skin and silk cord. It is secured to the blade with a bamboo pin in the traditional method.
The hilt fittings are brass.
Incredibly the Hamon, visible as the wavy line near the edge of the blade, is authentic, and was actually created buy differently clay tempering the steel blade.
It would be very easy to mistake this for a full size sword. Instead the hilt is less than 2" long!
The sword is packaged in a wood presentation box.
A small wood stand was included with the sword for display.
