United Black Rurousha Leather Forged Katana Sword Damascus
The United Black collection yields another fully functional and high quality sword to the series with the Rurousha (Japanese for "nomad") katana. The Rurousha measures 41 1/4" overall and exemplifies the katana design as a tool of war and work of art. It offers a hand forged 29 7/8" blade of 1060 Damascus steel folded 9 times to 1792 layers for superior strength and flexibility. The blade tang has an exclusive stamp that can only be found on a United Black sword blade. The Bushido Code's seven virtues: rectitude, courage, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor and loyalty are laser etched on the blade. The hardwood handle features a wide leather wrap to create a traditional look and feel. The cast metal guard offers a simplistic design that coordinates with the pommel. The hardwood sheath is adorned with leather wrap similar to that of the handle. United Cutlery, UC2582.
