The blade is fully hand-made in the most traditional Japanese craftsmanship way.
It is fully hand-forged, hand-polished and hand-sharpened by our experienced smith. This blade is made of folded steel and has folded 12 times to create the 4096 layers to increase the flexibility and hardness of the blade and a distinct texture is left on the blade as a result of the repeated folding during the process. The visible tenuous undulating grain on the blade was resulted from folded repeatedly during forging. A special clay is applied to the blade by hand, using a thin covering near the edge and a thicker layer over the rest of the blade.This results in a relatively quicker cooling of the edge during quenching, producing a harder edge and softer back. The beautiful real hamon is also a result of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering).
The tip of the blade is a Chu Kissaki (medium length). The blade is in full-tang which greatly enhances the strength of the whole sword. The blade is strong enough to cut a thick bamboo tree and sharp enough to slice paper.This tsuba (guard) of the sword is made of zinc alloy with two Seppas spacer securing it. The Habaki (blade collar) is of brass composition. This Tsuka is wooden one wrapped with genuine ray skin, and tied with cotton ITO in the traditional wrap. The Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) on the tsuka are made of zinc alloy with matching Menuki on each side as an ornament, two Mekugi (peg) are nailed to secure the Tang of the sword. Sword can be disassembled by picking up the two Mekusgi (peg). This saya is hard wooden and lacquered black with high quality paint to high gloss its surface. The Sage-O is tied around the Kurikaka (knob) of the saya, the Koiguchi (scabbard mouth) and Kojiri (scabbard tip) has been hardened to tighten the hardness of the saya. 1: The sword is well assembled with saya and free silk bag!
