Clay tempering is a art for as well as a science. The traditional clay tempering techniques are perhaps the pinnacle of Japanese sword design. The resulting clay tempering produces an edge hardness of 60HRC while the blade body remains at softer 40HRC. This means that the edge is more resilient to dulling (its is very sharp!) while the blade body is able to flex whilst cutting targets, allowing maximum force without breakage. The blade is fully polished to a mirror shine and sharpened to an impeccable standard.

The tsuka (handle) is wood with real sting ray skin, tightly bound in black cotton ito (braid) with brass dragon menuki. The matching cast brass Fuchi and Kashira (handle fittings) feature maple leaf designs. And the tsuba (hand guard) a traditional, ever popular sunburst design. The saya is finished with high gloss blood red lacquer featuring brass cherry blossom inlay.
