This Pre-Owned Cheness 9260 Shobu-Zukuri Katana has a blade that is bent to a side - it continues to have a sharp edge and has a minimal amount of minor cosmetic blemishes. The kashira ferrule has a slight wiggle to it, but besides this the rest of the hilt and its components continue to be solidly constructed. The scabbard has some minor cosmetic blemishing and continues to function well.

The Cheness 9260 Shobu-Zukuri Katana Kurome features a through tempered 9260 silicon alloy carbon spring steel blade. The blade is in the Shobu Zukuri style, with a long tapering point. The tsuba is made of blackened iron, while the wood grip is wrapped in genuine black ray skin panels and a brown cotton cord. Includes a black lacquered wood scabbard, cotton sword bag and display box.
This is the more popular and the more common varient of the Shobu Zukuri katana. Shobu Zukuri refers to the shape of the blade. The word ''Shobu'' means Iris, and ''Zukuri'' means made or constructed. This type of sword is so named because of the resemblence with the leaf of an iris plant. The name of this sword ''Kurome'' literally translates to ''Black Eyes''. In this varient, the shinogi (ridgeline) of the sword ends just short of the tip of the sword. This results in a bladed tip more so than the Ayame (which has more of a needle-like tip). This type of a blade is what is more commonly seen when referring to a Shobu Zukuri katana.
