Keshi Katana Citadel
Citadel Keshi Katana

Citadel stands for superior quality, which can only be achieved by masterful handwork. All knives and swords are almost entirely made by hand. Minor variations in size and shape are the result of an individual order production.

Keshi in English means "poppy", which is the subject of this sword. The Tsuba made from blackened iron represents the leaves of the poppy. Fuchi, Kashira and Menuki show the unique flowers. Another highlight is the handle wrapped in brown leather, which is wound tightly on the related rayskin handle.

Statements (Kurigata, kojiri, Koiguchi) from buffalo horn adorn the black, high-gloss lacquered scabbard.

The razor-sharp blade is made of 1075 carbon steel. Under traditional Lehmbestrich this is differentiated to about 60 HRC at the cutting edge and 40 HRC hardened at the blade back. A fuller (Bo-Hi), which is also on set blacksmith ended Habiki, reduces weight and ensures optimum balance. Through the skills of the polisher the masterful work of the blacksmith comes fully to bear and presents a beautiful Hamon.

Each sword belongs next to a production certificate, a quality sword bag, a Sageo of silk, and a padded Cordura bag for transport.
