The blade of the sword has been constructed from 1060 high carbon steel and has been heat treated. The Hamon and curve of the blade have been authentically created. The curve of the blade has been created as a result of the tempering process. When the blade is quenched the sword is covered with a clay solution, except for the edge of the blade. The blade is then heated and quenched in water drawn from the spring of Longquan. Since the Ha cools much more quickly than the rest of the blade the molecules in the steel expand and force the softer steel to fold back. A Bohi has been added to the blade to lessen the weight and give audible feedback when swung. The Kissaki is a medium length with a well defined Yokote. The blade is full tang and comes razor sharp. The Saya is wooden with a black high gloss finish. The Kurigata is wooden with brass fittings. Tied around the Kurigata is a black sageo. The Koiguchi has been hardened via laquering. The blade is secured by a one piece brass Habaki. The actual Tsuba is blackened iron with a sukashi (cut out) design. Two brass Seppas secure the tsuba of the sword. The Fuchi is blackened steel with a dragon. The Tsuka core is wooden with authentic Same (ray skin) under black cotton Ito. The tang is secured by two bamboo Mekugi. On each side of the Tsuka are bright brass Menuki. The Kashira is blackened iron.

Details of the Tsuka or Menuki are provided on the pictures.
