Product code: KCK-1

£1083.33

Kurin swords represent some of the best value production Shinken on the global market. Specialising in high quality tools for Iaido and Tameshigiri, Kurin's models bridge the gap between production models and bespoke Nihonto, at a fraction of the price.

Features of these top class Chuden models include:

  • Silk Tsuka Maki - Top quality Silk Ito, expertly wrapped around traditionally waisted Tsuka with genuine Samé (rayskin), for the finest quality practical finish.
     
  • Iaido Blade - blades are slimmed down and have a full Hi to reduce overall weight and improve balance.
     
  • T-10 Steel - high carbon mono-steel, forged and differentially tempered to produce a variable hardness (Ha - 57HRC, Mune 35HRC).
     
  • Hand Polish - traditional stones are used throughout the polishing process to produce an outstanding finish, showing the grain of the steel and to reveal the genuine Hamon.
     
  • Silver Kanagu - silver fittings in classic Japanese designs bring an additional touch of class to complete the package.

These swords do not include a stand.

    I just received my order from Nine Circles and I'm very pleased. This katana was a clearance item bc of a flaw in the polish alone the entire bo-hi that is really only noticeable when examining it in the light. I get the impression that this is not a common defect. The rest of the sword, however, is outstanding. The fittings are nice and tight. No wiggle room in the saya, yet very easy to draw. The blade itself feels light as a feather and is razor sharp. Since I am a tall guy, I was concerned that the tsuka would be too short or too slim but fits my palm perfectly. I certainly appreciate the generous discount Nine Circles provided for the cosmetic flaw and would highly recommend this model to any practitioner of iaido. I look forward to doing business w Nine Circles in the future! (bows)
