-The blade of the sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making . full hand forged and full hand polished.
-The blade was made of t-10 high carbon folded steel, and it has been laminated in a pucker configuration(Damascus steel). differential hardened and clay tempered, water quenched and polished. finally, after the hazuya polish to complete the polish project.
- The blade shaped shinogi-zukuri and has been hand polished with multiple grade sharpen stone by Japanese method, which made the surface of the blade like a mirror, the blade is also razor sharp.
-The blade can customize with a Bo-Hi (Blood Groove) in the genuine traditionally forged folded steel. This means that the hand-fired carbon steel is folded a full 10 times to produce 1024 layers. The higher quantity of layers provides more unique and mystical lines patterns, which defines and displays the craftsman's experience and knowledge of traditional metallurgy passed down from generation to generation. Only the utmost skilled bladesmiths and polishers can bring out the beauty blade. During the forging process, all of the slags and impurities of the carbon steel are burned off and forged folded to an uncompromised strength with an very sharp cutting edge.
-The real hamon pattern is done by differential hardening with clay temperd. The hardening process is made by utilizing a special clay on the edge, so it gets a different temperature and cools in different time than the rest of the blade, becoming harder and quenching the blade when it is cooled on water. It is a very complex technique, as if not properly executed the blade will break. The fire can't be too warm or cold, only a good swordsmith knows the exact temperature. The blade then get its shape with a beautiful hamon hada and Martensite (grains) on its surface. This way the edge can be very hard and the mune -the spine of the sword- softer giving it an excelent toughness. The perfect combination of a hard edge with the increased Sori (curvature of the blade) with a strong mune, enables this high quality blade to easily cut through tatami, straw mats or bamboo for Tameshigiri.
-This blade has a full length tang which greatly enhances the strength of the sword. The back of blade has the shinogi-zukuri shape and with chu-kissaki and Diamond-Shaped Yokote; it is well defined with the hamon going all the way through the Boshi.
-Kashirae: The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) of the sword is made of steel. The Habiki (blade collar) is a one piece brass construction. Two Seppas (spacer) secure the Tsuba.
-Tsuka: The Tsuka (handle) core is wooden and it is tightly wrapped over genuine Ray skin (Samegawa) with silk Ito wrapped.The full Tang of the sword is secured by two Mekugi (peg) . you can unassembled the blade from the handle by taking out 2 pegs. Two Menuki (ornament) are on each side of the Tsuka.
-Saya: The saya (sheath) of the sword is Hard Wooden With coffee Lacquer Work Be Shine, a high quality Silk Sageo has been tied around the Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard.
