WKC brings a new Katana, based on the forging technique of Makuri. The blade is made up of a soft steel inside (shingane) coated with a hard steel (kawagane) with higher percentage of carbon. The material is called tama-hagane:

  • Sugata (Blade style):
    • Hand-forged curved blade with Bohi ni tsure-hi (one small and one large groove) The outside groove is larger than the inside grrove. Blade with Chu-Kissaki (tip). The blade spine is iori-mune. The blade is forged from 2 sorts of steel, the softer low carbon steel is embedded into the harder Tamahagane steel. This forging art comes from the Japanese model Makuri which was taught in Japan since centuries but only to the best smith. The two steels are forged up to 32768 layers and thanks to the traditional clay-wrapping technique for differential hardening, you can see the martensite crystals and the Hamonline. This is made visible with our carbon steel blade only by manual polishing. The hardness of the Mune is ca 48° HRC and the Ha (blade edge) is ca 61° HRC.

  • Dimensions:
    • Nagasa (blade length): ca. 71 cm / 28 inch.
    • Sori (curvature): ca.2.54 cm / 1 inch.
    • Moto-Kasane (Thickness at base): ca. 8 mm/ 0.31 inch.
    • Saki-Haba (width at tip): ca. 22 mm / 0.86 inch.
    • Moto-Haba (width at base): ca. 32 mm / 1.26 inch.
    • Balance point (measured from Habaki): ca.10 cm / 3.93 inch
    • Nakago (tongue) with Mei (inscription) according to the tradition: WKC and year of production.
