This is a beautiful katana with a shobu zukuri blade made of folded 1095 high carbon steel. Being made of 1095 steel means that this sword can be used on heavy targets without compromising its edge. Adding to the grain pattern or hada on the blade brought by the folding process is a beautiful horimono or engraving on both sides of the blade near the habaki.
The tsuba, fuchi, kashira and menuki are made of cast brass with beautiful designs. The habaki and seppa are made of brass as well. The tsuka is wrapped with real rayskin in white color and black, synthetic silk ito. The black saya is made of hardwood with dragon engraving and with buffalo horn koiguchi, kurikata and kojiri.
