The blade of the sword has been hand forged using the traditional method of sword making. Full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened.
The blade was made of 1095 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru style with a clay temper line. A special clay was 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 hard edge and soft back. the real & wave style hamon on the blade was also result of the differential cooling of the whole blade
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 was well defined with the hamon going all the way through the Boshi.
