 Product Description

Ronin Elite Katana #208 - Oni (demon) theme

 

This Ronin Elite katana has been traditionally forged and laminated in the soshu kitae tradition (seven panel steel). This school was developed by the legendary Japanese smith Masamune, and combines panels of hard, medium, and soft steels. The core of the blade is formed from softer, more malleable steel giving it exceptional flexibility. A layer of slightly harder steel is bonded to each side of the core to add support. The last layers are a very hard steel bonded to the top, bottom, and both sides of the core forming the ha (cutting edge) mune (back edge) and shinogi-ji (blade flats). This form of laminar construction provided for a sword that could be sharpened to a razor edge due to the hardened steed used for the ha, but was extremely resilient to battle damage due to its softer more flexible core.

Ronin elite katana are one of a kind, and the pictures are of the exact katana for sale.

  1. Nobody Does It Better

    Posted by Stephen Templar on Mar 5th 2018

    This Katana is incredible! I own everything from Ronin Dojo Pro, to Cheness, to SBG Project X, to actual Japanese Katana, Wakizashi, and Tanto. I love Katana. Japanese and Japanese style blades just speak to me.

    This Ronin Elite is everything a Shinken is meant to be. The balance and handling characteristics are second to none. Most Samurai did not ever own a sword this good in their entire lifetime. No joke!

    I cannot know if every Ronin Elite Katana is this good, but I can tell you that no one has ever needed a better weapon than this one.
