Blade: 

-The Blade Of The Sword Has Been Hand Forged Using The Ancient  Method Of Sword Making. Full Hand Forged, Hand Polished And Hand Sharpened Work.


-The Blade Of The Sword Has Been Hand Forged And Quenched Using Diferential  Hardening, In The Same Methods As Traditional Japanese Sword In The Traditional  Shihozume Structure. The Sword Is High Class For Collection!!!

-The Core Of The Blade Is Made Of Iron To Absorb And Distribute Impact, The  Sides Are Made Of Forged AISI 1060 Carbon Steel Folded 11 Times Generating 2048  Layers In The Steel. The Back Of The Blade Is Forged In AISI 1045 Steel. And  Most Important Is The Edge Which Forged Of AISI 1095 High Carbon Stell (O.95%  Carbon, ~59HRC), Making A Very Hard And Razor Sharp Edge.

-This Blade Is Clay Tempered And Quenched With A Real Forged Hamon, Then  Polished And Sharpened By 14 Different Process.

-The Hamon Pattern Is Done By Differential Hardening With Clay Temper. 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.

-This Blade Has A Full Length Tang Which Greatly Enhances The Strength Of The  Sword. The Back Of Blade Has The Shinogi-Zukuri Shape And With Chu-Kissaki And  Diamond-Shaped Yokoto; It Is Well Defined With The Hamon Going All The Way  Through The Boshi. 

The Shihozume Tradional Lamination Stule Utilizes Three Different Steels And  Iron To Better Distribute Impact Throughout The Blade, Making A MUCH More  Resilent Blade. Each Part Of The Blade Is Made With Steels Of Specific  Properties To Achieve This End:

- The Edge Is Made Of High Carbon Steel, To Be Very Hard And Achieve Impressive  Sharpness. 

- The Core, Is Made Of Iron To Absorb Impact Energy. 

- The Sides Are Made Of Folded Steel Both For A Great Apearance And To Increase  The Blade's Resistance To Bendind.

- And The Back Is Made Of A Softer Steel, So It Don't Allow The Whole Blade To  Break Easily.
