The darker red of the Saya blends subtlety with the slightly lighter red of the Ito. This Katana bears both a simple iron Tsuba and a long Bo-Hi, but it's main feature is the expertly-tempered blade.
Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening. The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, and keeps its edge very well.
Clay Tempered: The blade has been clay tempered in order to harden the cutting edge while still allowing the spine to remain flexible. The tempering process imbues the blade with a distinctive Hamon (blade pattern).
Electroplated: Red & Black
