This blade is made of folded steel and has folded 12 times to create the 4096 layers to increase the flexibility and hardness of the blade and a distinct texture is left on the blade as a result of the repeated folding during the process. The visible tenuous undulating grain on the blade was resulted from folded repeatedly during forging. Bo-hi (blood groove) is added to each side of the blade which can not only lighten the blade but also balance it to achieve optimal performance. (If you do not want the Bo-Hi, just let us know and we can customize for you.) Two seppas spacers secure the Tsuba. The Habaki (blade collar) is of brass composition. This saya (sheath) of the sword is hard wooden and lacquered superior paint to high gloss the surface of it. The Sage-O is tied around the Kurikata (knob) of the saya, the Koiguchi (scabbard mouth) and Kojiri (scabbard tip) has been hardened.
1. The sword is attached with saya and free silk bag. 2. Box and stand are not included.
