The 28″ blade on this awesome katana is wide and powerful and meant for serious use. It has been traditionally differentially hardened to produce an authentic sanbon-sugi hamon*, which is as unique as it is functional. To lighten the blade enough to be surprisingly agile, two thin grooves called futasuji-hi are cut into the shinogi-ji along the length of the blade and terminating near the stunning and rare O kissaki. The futasuji hi manage to decrease the blade’s weight as a bo hi would, but without creating as much drag through a target as a single wider and deeper hi tends to.
The classic look of the Higo is complemented by a strong blackened steel mokko shaped tsuba with a raised rim and textured face. The black gloss inro style saya comes with a black synthetic silk sageo and real horn koiguchi and kurikata. The sword is further accented by the beautiful brass habaki, seppa and kurikata shitodome.
The 10″ tsuka features real samegawa panels wrapped in black synthetic silk ito. Blackened steel higo style fuchi & kashira, a pair of nicely detailed catfish menuki, and two bamboo mekugi (retaining pins) are also included. The factory tsukamaki is very tight and should last through years of regular use.
The Higo katana is a powerful and efficient cutter that can easily take on all targets from multiple roll tatami mats, to tough bamboo** and all the way on down to your pool noodles or standard water filled bottles. The Higo is highly recommended for those looking for a real workhorse katana to use in the dojo as well as in the backyard. This sword was designed and built to be a first class cutter and with it’s amazing balance, agility and power, it will not disappoint. With the Higo, we weren’t concerned with themes or other expensive features that don’t add to the swords cutting abilities, we were only focused on bringing you the best handling and performing katana we could possibly design and for a price you can afford. You should expect some small imperfections on all production katana, including the Feilong line-up, but none of these will affect the swords performance at all. With proper care and maintenance, the Higo will last a lifetime and is sure to become your favorite and most reliable go to cutter.
With a classic look, no nonsense fittings, solid craftsmanship and built to take on a wide range of targets, the Feilong Higo katana is at the top of it’s class. Proudly, we get to bring you what practitioners in Europe and all over the world have been using and recommending for years. Finally, you get to see what it’s like to cut with a Feilong Higo katana, right here in the USA!
