Handle Length: 10.6 inch/27 cm. Handle Material: Ray Skin + Hard Wood. Sori(curve): 1.8 CM. Blade Width(near Habaki): 1.26 inch/3.2 cm.
Package weight : 2.0 kg. Blade Width(near Kissaki): 0.91 inch/2.3 cm. The blade is fully hand-made in the most traditional Japanese craftsmanship way. It is fully hand-forged, hand-polished and hand-sharpened by our experienced smith.
The blade was made of T10 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru structure with a clay temper line. A special clay is applied to the blade by hand, using a thin covering near the edge and a thicker layer over the rest of the blade. This results in a relatively quicker cooling of the edge during quenching, producing a harder edge and softer back. There is no Bo-hi (groove) added on both sides of the blade.
The blade is in full-tang which greatly enhances the strength of the whole sword. The blade is strong enough to cut a thick bamboo tree and sharp enough to slice paper. This tsuba (guard) of the sword is made of Iron with two Copper Seppas to put on each side of it (spacer securing it). The Habaki (blade collar) is of brass composition. This Tsuka is made of hard wood and wrapped with genuine ray skin, and tied with real silk ITO in a newly traditional wrap style.The Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) on the tsuka are made of iron with matching Menuki on each side as an ornament, two Mekugi (peg) are nailed to secure the Tang of the sword. Sword can be disassembled by picking up the two Mekugi (peg). This saya (sheath) of the sword is made of high quality hard wood. The Sage-O is tied around the Kurikaka (knob) of the saya, the Koiguchi(scabbard mouth) and Kojiri(scabbard tip) has been hardened. The sword is well assembled with saya and free silk bag!
