Rurouni Kenshin Sakabato (reverse blade)
Since the popular Japanese anime was aired, many of our customers have requested us to make a sakabato. After almost 20 years of being asked, we finally decided to make a limited number of them.
These reverse blade katanas are made of L6 alloy steel and the blades are diferentially hardened. These are fully functional katanas that can be used for tameshigiri practices.
