The Monshou features a Forge Folded Kobuse Lamination with a traditional geometry. The design of the Katana has been inspired by the swords of the Japanese Warring States period. Swords from this period were designed to cut through armor and thus needed to have a strong, reinforced edge. Adding Niku was the solution to the blades being able to stand up to armor and not break. This blade features medium Niku along the Shinogiji of the blade allowing for heavier and harder cutting. The Niku keeps the blade thicker so the cuts will not be as swift and clean as a light cutter, but the the Ha will keep its cutting edge longer. The sword is appropriate for heavy Tameshigiri with tatami and bamboo.
