Product Description

“Kuro Suzaku Katana 1050 Folded Series”

Kuro Suzaku (Dark Phoenix) – A universal symbol of the sun, mystical rebirth, resurrection and immortality, this legendary fire bird was believed to die in its self-made flames periodically then rise again out of its own ashes.

The folded steel blade of our Kuro Suzaku Katana has been coated and then folded to produce 2,800 layers. Beautiful layers of black and rustic-bloody-red-orange sheen can be seen on the blade. In terms of overall quality and finish, a folded steel blade is on the same level as their forged mono-steel brothers and sisters. It doesn’t make the blade any sharper or tougher. It’s only difference is that the steel has been folded resulting in a blade with a nice “hada” (grain in steel, pattern of folding the steel) and is of course much more attractive to the eye compared to a mono-steel blade and gives a more traditional look.

The blade being blackened, it will be more resistant to rust and corrosion making it a very low maintenance blade. But, you still need to put oil on the blade to maximize rust and corrosion resistance. Also oiling it will make the blade look more beautiful.

The Kuro Suzaku Katana is a perfect companion of the Kuro Suzaku Wakizashi making them a daisho.

    one of the most beautiful blades I have ever seen and owned.

    I got this very beautiful blade not only because of it’s physical qualities, but also because of the significance of the phoenix. This blade is truly a good balance between quality and cost. Thanks to Geisha’s Blade for making such functional works of art available to us in such a convenient, hassle free way. Looking forward to my next sword!

    A very beautiful katana that I owned now. It has visible folds and a very nice blade in black.. I tried to cut plastic containers and its effective.. But not on bamboo. I’ll try sharpened it more cause it seems not as sharp as what expected maybe it would increase its cutting edge. I really wanted to see this as an odachi.. A very beautiful dark long sword would really be breath taking… and for the tsuba.. its way too cool and beautiful as expected.. I’m not using this for a display.. its a 1050 carbon steel i’ll try to work this katana out..
