Hi Jonathan - glad to hear that! Thanks - The BladesPro Team
This regal sword has been given special attention in its design and construction. With exquisite art decorating the Tsuba and Kashira and with a beautiful hardwood Tsuku, this sword is as much a work of art as it is a functional tool.
Note: Like its quality, this sword's length is above average.
Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening, Shitaji togi & Shiage togi. 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.
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).
