This katana exemplifies beauty in simplicity. Its blade is a through-hardened 1095 monosteel making it very tough and able to cut hard targets such as thick bamboo and bone. The design of the bo-hi makes this sword a fast and agile cutter. There is a detailed hand-engraved dragon on one side of the blade and a hand-engraved buddhist vajra sword on the other side. The tsuba is made of iron with a simple design while the habaki and seppa are made of brass. The tsuka is made of hardwood with black rayskin panels and wrapped in brown cotton ito. The hardwood saya is fully wrapped in genuine same' (rayskin) and fitted with black buffalo horn kojiri, kurikata, and koiguchi. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications vary slightly from sword to sword.
