Designer's Notes: "These series of swords are designed and built with superb handling and cutting ability in mind, which is why I started with designing the habaki. Fractions of an inch or tenths of a millimeter have been taken into account in the dimensions of the habaki to serve as the heart of our competition grade series of swords. The habaki dimensions dictates how the sword handles and where the weight is distributed along the sword. Then the blade is designed according to the specific cutting purpose it will fulfill. How the sword flexes and cuts through a target are dicated by the dimensions of the katana, such as thickness, width, shinogi-ji width, and edge profile. Overall, I strived to design purpose-built swords that are tailored to the serious cutter, martial artist, or enthusiast."
Blade: The blade is made in the shinogi-zukuri geometry with very differentially hardened T-10 tool steel which has a superior heat treatment. It has a wider blade with a thin edge profile with some ha-niku to help give some strength to the edge without sacrificing overall edge geometry and to maximize the thinner cross section as the sword passes through targets. The blade has a chu-kissaki with midare boshi.
The blade comes sharp and full tang.
Saya: The saya of the sword is wooden with a black high gloss finish and bull horn koiguchi. The sageo is thick synthetic fiber tied over a wooden kurigata with golden shitedome. The kurikata is placed the proper distance from the koiguchi to allow the user to easily release the sword from the saya.
Tsuka: The habaki is a Munetoshi custom design from Jake of the Cutting Mechanics. All of the sword fittings are made of brass, with a custom thin blackened brass dragonfly tsuba. The fuchi and kashira are made to be as ergonomic as possible and are made of brass. The tsuka has tight hinerimaki using black synthetic ito over genuine samegawa ray skin with double bamboo mekugi pegs. The menuki are brass and have a dual-toned chrysanthemum theme.
