This Shirasaya sword is fully handmade with traditional technology. It is Damascus folded steel blade with special treated, which was made by repeatedly heating, hammering and folding the metal, creating subtle and visible layers on blade. The process of folding metal is to improve the strength of blade. Blue color on the surface of blade is made by electroplating, this not only looks beautiful but also can prevent the blade from rusting.
There is a long bo hi on each side of the blade, which not only allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung, but also can balance the blade to achieve optimal performance. This sword has no tsuba, the tsuka (handle) core is wooden. Its tang is secured by two bamboo mekugi (pegs). Saya is blue hard wood.
