The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, keeps its edge very well and is incomparable. The blade is sharpened, if unsharpened is required please get in contact.
Folded Steel: This blade had been folded eleven times, creating 2048 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.
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.
