Blade: The blade has been constructed of differentially hardened forge
folded 1075 steel with over 7,800 layers to create a stunning blade. The
folding of the steel creates a very fine grained mokume hada, which is
brought out by the high quality hand polish using Japanese water stones,
which is very reminiscent of a kesho or hadori polish. It is laminated
in the kobuse style over an iron core. The shinogi is polished and the
shinogi-ji is very crisp and defined. The kissaki has a well defined and
sharp yokote line, and is properly polished to be a white color with a
discernable boshi and hada.

with a samegawa ray skin wrap that shows off the sanded down emperor's
node, as well as genuine buffalo horn koiguchi, kurikata, and kojiri.

Koshirae: The habaki is made of silver coated bronze with the crossed
feathers family crest engraved on both sides with silver plated bronze
seppa. The tsuba has been made of bronze which is then silver coated,
blackened, and polished to achieve a stunning high quality finish. It
features a hand hammered and polished tsuchime mimi (rim) with a stormy
sea center relief. The fuchi and kashira are also made of silver coated
bronze with finely detailed ishime stone texturing and polished edge
ring to match the tsuba. The menuki are antiqued silver plated bronze in
a stormy boat design with samurai passengers. The tsuka is wrapped in
Japanese imported black silk in a mix of hiramaki and hinerimaki with
the menuki tied over the ito to help show off the details of the menuki.
