Byzer Brand Artistic Katana - Sanmai M2 core, spring steel/carbon steel sides, brass fittings, 32" Nagasa
Sanmai construction takes a hard steel as the central cutting edge, laminated to softer steels on the sides This ingenious method allows for a combination of elasticity, durability, and hardness.
Byzer's modern take uses M2 tool steel (tungsten-Molydenum) as the core. It allows for beautiful clay-tempered hamon. The sides are made of a proprietary blend of spring steel and carbon steel folded together for both aesthetic value and elasticity.
This katana features gold-plated brass fittings, genuine rayskin, and leater wrapped tsuka.
