This sword features an ocean theme, with a nami or wave tsuba and turbulent water fuchi and kashira. The blade is hand forged and differentially hardened 1075 high carbon steel. Each blade is hand polished using traditional stones and powders to produce an authentic look. This sword features a full length bo-hi or fuller to lighten and balance the blade. The hi continues through the habaki and into the nakago, with the copper habaki forged to follow the hi.
The tsuka is carved to each individual sword ensuring a tight friction fit with a full same-gawa wrap. The ito or handle wrapping is natural white silk imported from Japan, the ito is dyed with tea to give it a slight tan color that will darken a bit with use.
The saya is lacquered in a deep midnight blue with a same-gawa or sting ray skin wrap. Each saya is carved for the individual sword ensuring a proper snug fit.
