Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening, Shitaji togi & Shiage togi. The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, and keeps its edge very well.

Folded Steel: This blade had been folded eleven times, creating 2048 layers. This traditional sword forging method involves repeatedly heating, hammering and folding the swords steel. The effect of this work evens out and homogenises the carbon content, making for a stronger, more flexible blade.

Clay Tempered: The blade has been clay tempered in order to harden the cutting edge while still allowing the spine to remain flexible. The tempering process imbues the blade with a distinctive Hamon (blade pattern).

Beautiful piece of craftsmanship. The construction is perfect from the sword to the Saya. Only issue I have is that I actually purchased this sword because in the description it says "no Bo-Hi" as I wanted a sword without a groove. Unfortunately when it arrived it had a Bo-Hi. That doesn't change the fact that it's a beautiful piece that I have decided to keep as it's a fine edition to the collection.
