Description:

Starting with a single pure billet of 1095 steel, the blade is hand-forged until malleable and shaped to form. The Bushi 1095 blades then undergo the traditional clay-tempering process. The resulting white Hamon lends the steel another layer of intricacy as well as creates a differentially hardened edge. The Bushi line is given a high-grade hybrid polish. Using modern techniques and machinery, the blade is shaped and rough polished. The final stages of polishing are done by hand to ensure a smooth and elegant finish. This process, while faster than a traditional hand-polish, also tends to be more resistant to scratching and wear and tear while still displaying the Hamon, making it ideal or mid-range swords meant for either use or collection.

The Bushi 1095 line strikes a perfect balance between tradition and modern materials at an incredible value. Offering the same strength and geometry of our popular Daimyo 1095 line combined with a harder wearing hybrid polish, the Bushi 1095 line excels as a functional sword. Our Bushi class offers great value while remaining faithful to the principles of superior Japanese sword design and esthetic’s.
