The blade is hand-made in traditional Japanese craftsmanship way. It is hand-forged, hand-polished and hand-sharpened by our experienced smith. The blade is made of folded steel and has folded 12 times to create the 4096 layers to increase the flexibility and hardness of the blade and a distinct texture is left on the blade as a result of the repeated folding during the process.The visible tenuous undulating grain on the blade was resulted from folded repeatedly during forging. The Kissaki shape of the blade tip is Chu-kissaki.
The blade surface is mirror polished by multiple abrasive stones and sand-paper. Clay was used to thinly cover the edge of blade and thicker layer cover the rest of the blade.This leads to relatively quicker cooling of the blade during quenching, producing a hard edge and softer back. The hamon on the blade was the result of quenching and tempering. The blade is in full-tang which greatly enhances the strength of the whole sword.
