The blade of the sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. Full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened.
The blade was made of t-10 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru style with a clay temper line. A special clay is applied to the blade by hand, using a thin covering near the edge and a thicker layer over the rest of the blade. this results in a relatively quicker cooling of the edge during quenching, producing a hard edge and soft back. the real hamon on the blade is also result of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering).
This blade has a shape in "Unokubi-Zukuri" style, There is one Hi (HAND-MADE blood groove) on each side which is from Habaki to the middle of the blade, The thickness on the back becomes thinner from the half of the blade towards the tip, but the back turns to thick near the kissaki. This blade has been hand polished with multiple grade sharpen stone by Japanese method, which made the surface of the blade like a mirror, the blade is also very sharp.
The tip of the blade is a shubo-zukuri style tip, (long length), it is well defined with the hamon going all the way through the Boshi.
This blade comes with a full length Tang which greatly enhances the strength of the sword. this sword is strong enough to cut through a thick bamboo tree with a single strike yet sharp enough to slice paper.
This wakizashi sword is for those who want a real sword. The sword is made in the exact same method of the ancient Japanese process of making swords and is sharper than a razor. The accessories of the sword are all authentic from the ray skin handle, and copper fittings.the best sword you will find in the price range and nice work product.
