The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities. The clay temper process combines the characters of toughness and flexibility and results in a genuine hamon (temper line). The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The sword comes with an african rosewood shirasaya style handle and saya with buffalo horn. The tang is secured with two mekugi and features a mei (signature). This sword is a very good choice for dojo and iaido use, gifts, cutting practice, display, and collection.
