--The Blade Of The Sword Has Been Hand Forged And Quenched Using Diferential Hardening, In The Same Methods As Traditional Japanese Nihonto.
-The Core Of The Blade Is Made Of Forged AISI 1045 Steel, And The Sides Are Made Of Forged AISI 1095 Carbon Steel Folded 11 Times, Generating 2048 Layers In The Steel, In Kobuse Lamination Style.
-The AISI 1095 High Carbon Steel (The Steel Has A 0.95% Carbon Content And 0.4% Manganese. It Is Extremely Hard -58 HRC- Making A Very Sharp Edge). This Blade Is Clay Tempered And Quenched, Then Polished And Sharpened By 14 Different Process.
-The Hamon Pattern Is Done By Differential Hardening With Clay Temperd. The Hardening Process Is Made By Utilizing A Special Clay On The Edge, So It Gets A Different Temperature And Cools In Different Time Than The Rest Of The Blade, Becoming Harder And Quenching The Blade When It Is Cooled On Water. It Is A Very Complex Technique, As If Not Properly Executed The Blade Will Break. The Fire Can't Be Too Warm Or Cold, Only A Good Swordsmith Knows The Exact Temperature. The Blade Then Get Its Shape With A Beautiful Hamon Hada And Martensite (Grains) On Its Surface. This Way The Edge Can Be Very Hard And The Mune -The Spine Of The Sword- Softer Giving It An Excelent Toughness. The Perfect Combination Of A Hard Edge With The Increased Sori (Curvature Of The Blade) With A Strong Mune, Enables This High Quality Blade To Easily Cut Through Tatami, Straw Mats Or Bamboo For Tameshigiri.
