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).

Folded Steel: This blade had been folded fifteen times, creating 32768 layers. This traditional sword forging method involves repeatedly heating, hammering and folding the swords steel. The effect of this work evens out and homogenises the carbon content, making for a stronger, more flexible blade.

beautiful sword

havent used it for cutting tatami mats or anything but paper tested it and its got a good edge. fittings are nice and tight and the blade is beautiful with the folding lines and the hamon. the habaki is well fitted to the blade and beautifuly marked.tsuba and tsuka are well finished. tsuka ito is reasonably tight. the saya and sagea are beautifuly finished.it is sent well oiled so it wond arrive rusted. and the sword fits into the saya incredibly nice and snug especialy for a sub £2000 (seen many with terribly lose fitting). thesword its a stunning piece of art that i will love for years to come.
