United Black Shikyo Forged Katana 1045 Carbon Sword
The United Black collection delivers another superior example of the Japanese katana. This is the Shikyo (Japanese for "death") katana. This sword measures 43 1/8" and features a mirror polished 29 1/2" blade of hand forged 1045 carbon steel with a heavy blood groove. 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 offers black ray skin and custom leather wrap accented with brass menuki and a uniquely designed cast metal guard and pommel. The hardwood sheath features custom cloth cord wrapping coordinating with the handle. United Cutlery, UC2585.
