-The blade of the sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. Full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened.
-This blade are sanmai construction, It is constructed of two different kinds of steel, the core steel and the outer steel, where the core steel is wrapped with the outer steel. the core steel is harder than the outer steel.
the outer steel was made of folded steel. AISI 1060 High Carbon Steel are folded 12 times creating 4096 layers for superior strength&flexibility. the visible tenuous undulating grain on the blade was resulted from folded repeatedly during forging.
The core steel was made of 1095 steel, The steel has been thoroughly rolling and tempered, A double clay is applied to blade body 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 hard edge and softer back. the beautiful & authentic hamon on the blade is also result of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering).
This blade 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 very sharp.
The tip of the blade is a Chu Kissaki (medium length), it is well defined with the hamon going all the way through the Boshi.
This blade comes with a full length Tang which greatly enhances the strength of the sword. this sword is strong enough to cut through a thick bamboo tree with a single strike yet sharp enough to slice paper.
