Description Item Specs
 
The blade of the sword has been hand forged with High Carbon Steel. It has been laminated in Kobuse style with the hard steel (Hagane) on the cutting edge and a 0.5% soft steel (Kawagane) core. This style allows the sword to be flexible while still maintaining a 58 HRC of hardness. This hardness not only makes the blade tougher but also allows the blade to hold a sharper edge for longer.
Features
  • Attributes of the Weapon:
  • Blade: The blade of the sword has been hand forged with High Carbon Steel. It has been laminated in Kobuse style with the hard steel (Hagane) on the cutting edge and a 0.5% soft steel (Kawagane) core. This style allows the sword to be flexible while still maintaining a 58 HRC of hardness. This hardness not only makes the blade tougher but also allows the blade to hold a sharper edge for longer.
  • The blade has undergone the Yake-Ire process of clay covering. The result is a differential tempering of the blade creating the hamon. The Martensite is Nie (large crystals in the hamon).
  • The tip is Chu Kissaki with a well defined Yokote. The blade is razor sharp and comes full tang.
  • Saya (Scabbard): The scabbard is hard wood with a black lacquer finish and blue sageo.
  • Tsuba (Guard): The habaki is copper mounted over an oxidized copper seppa. The Tsuba is in a Moko Gata style with the Kozuka-Hitsu-ana and Kogai Hitsu-ana. Sakura and praying mantis are inlaid in silver alloy on each side of the Tsuba. The Fuchi is inlaid with a golden praying mantis and silver orchid blossom.
  • Tsuka (Handle): The Tsuka is hardwood over the tang with a ray skin Same and blue Ito (cord wrap). Mantis Menuki are on each side of the Tsuka. There are two Mekugi securing the tang. The Kashira (pommel) is another golden Mantis on a leaf.
  • Tsuba: The Mantis and Blossoms are inlaid Gold and Silver
  • Hamon: Authentically made in the Yaki-Ire process using a clay covering. The clay is applied to the whole blade with a thinner coat applied to the Ha. The blae is then heated and quenched. The Quenching produces a Pearlite solid in the blade and a Martensite solid in the Ha. The Martensite in the Ha creates a much harder edge defined by crystal formations of steel.
  • There are two different types of crystals Nie and Nioi. Nie are crystals that are visible to the naked eye. Nioi is too small to be seen and appears as a cloudy mark on the steel. This blade has both the Nie and Nioi crystal formations. The Nie and Noi are marks of an authentically made Hamon.
  • Yasurime: The Yasurime are the file marks that appear on the tang after it is completed by the sword smith. This is a way to identify the blade and the sword smith. This blade has a Sujikai style of marking.
  • Kissaki: The blade is a Chu Kissaki or Medium Kissaki.
