Samurai sword with chu kissaki tip
One of the most distinctive features of the Chu-Kissaki Katana is its blade tip, which has a unique shape called the chu-kissaki. This shape is a slightly shorter and more rounded tip than the traditional kissaki, which is long and pointed. The chu-kissaki shape was popularized during the Muromachi period (1336–1573), and it was favored by samurai for its ability to deliver a more balanced and powerful strike. Discover more about the different types of katana kissaki.
The blade of the Chu-Kissaki Katana is forged from high-quality high manganese carbon steel, which has been expertly heat-treated to achieve optimal hardness and durability. The blade is then polished to a mirror-like finish, which not only enhances its beauty but also helps to reduce drag during cutting.
The handle of the Chu-Kissaki Katana is made from imitate ray skin and wrapped with high-quality cotton. The tsuba (guard) is made of copper. The saya (scabbard) is also crafted from high-quality wood and finished with a glossy lacquer.

How the Chu-Kissaki Katana is forged
This iconic Japanese sword is traditionally forged using a meticulous and time-intensive process. The blade is typically made from a combination of iron sands and charcoal that has been smelted in a traditional furnace. The steel is then repeatedly heated, folded, and hammered to remove impurities and create a strong, durable blade with a sharp edge.
The resulting sword is not only a functional weapon, but also a work of art that embodies the rich cultural history of Japan.
