The black of the Ito, Saya, and Sageo combine to give this Katana a foreboding look. When unsheathed, this feeling only grows stronger when one witnesses the elegance of the well-tempered and folded 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.
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.
