The Essence of Elegance, this masterfully balanced and ornate sword has striking green Menuki perfectly offsetting a laurel tsuba and earth-tone blade finish. Made for the serious martial enthusiast or avid collector, this 'Elite' masterwork reminds one of powerful magic and soothing grace.
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.
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).
