The "Tomoe" or "Tomoye" is the name of one of Japan's oldest symbols. It is actually made up of three individual "magatama". It is said that many of the gods were created from these "magatama". The "Tomoe" comes in many forms, but the trinity spiral kind is largely associated with the Samurai.
The blade is forged, hammered and folded 'Pattern Welded Steel'. Commonly know as 'Damascus Steel' as the final product is very similar to the steel mined from the Damascus mines of a bygone era (hence the name). It is produced from combining steels of different grades, which in turn are of different shades of grey. They are twisted and folded together, resulting in beautiful swirls and grain patterns. The final polishing, sharpening and treatment on the blade bring out these patterns to their full stunning glory. Our full tang, through tempered 'Damascus Steel' Katana blade features a beautiful 'Bo-Hi' (blood groove), and an etched hamon, which is added for aesthetic qualities. This is a visually stunning and extremely sharp blade!
