Citadel - Iaito

These craftsmen stand out for their classic line and their functional quality, which is well matched with traditional manufacturing techniques and the materials used.
The blades are carbon-hardened to a hardness of around 40 HRC after which, after being hammered by hand, the back and sides are covered with clay and the wire is tempered at 60 HRC to have excellent cutting capacity, penetration and flexibility. The blade is then polished by hand on stone and the sword is finished in every single detail.

Given the high nature of these swords, we would like to point out that the photo is purely for illustrative purposes as tsuba designs kits and kashira may differ from the one shown here as they could differ, albeit slightly, the weights and measures of the sword .
