Bearing a stalwart warrior on the Tsuba and a grey folded steel blade with a gleaming Bo-Hi on each side of the sword, this Katana seems slightly aware. Even the Saya has a metallic glint, as if the blade were peeking out through a transparent red skin.

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 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.
