CISH1001: Shinto Katana
CAS Hanwei

Each piece in the Shinto Daisho (SH1001 & SH1015) has a hand-forged T10 high-carbon steel blade with Bo-Hi. The blade is differentially hardened using the traditional claying method. The Shinto is mounted in black and the tsuka-ito is made of premium black Japanese cotton. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black cotton sageo. A finely rendered dragon, detailed in gold, with true front-and-back detail, forms the black iron tsuba. The fittings are superbly antiqued adding to the aesthetics of the set. The Shinto is supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.

Pros: Materials, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Overall Quality, Usable
Cons: None
This sword is fantastic! Razor sharp and ready to cut right from the box. The balancing is a perfect one finger center weight. This sword is incredibly strong for being so light, I've cut over 50 mats with out a single nick in my blade. In my opinion this sword is on par with even the Folded blades like the orchid or tiger.
