Detail Description

The blades of the swords are hand forged from carbon steel and hardened in the traditional way. The blade is folded 12 times (yields approximately 8,000 positions) and have a beautiful damascene structure. The sharp ground out blades were provided for weight reduction with a Bo-hi (channel). The handles (tsuka) are made of wood and are equipped with real fish skin (Same) occupied. The handle wrap (Tsuka-Ito) is traditionally mounted from black Baumwole. On handle two Menukis are inserted. The sword fishing are particularly long and held with two bamboo pins (Mekugi) mounted in the handle. The sheath (saya) is made of wood. The blade collar (habaki) are made of brass and were manufactured by museum originals.
Shintai are physical objects which play the role of relics in religious sites. They were not conceived in Japanese mythology as places of residence of the gods (kami). The sword is next to mirror and gem (jap. Throne Insignia) a typical Shintai. On the Tsuba Japanese gods are depicted.
Each sword comes with a seal, which guarantees authenticity. You get every sword in a cloth bag and a high quality collector wooden cassette.
Multi-layer steel (folded blade) is also known as Damascus or Damascus blade, although European and Asian production methods differ slightly from one another. The fine pattern of the individual layers of the multi-folded steel give this product its special charm and are at the same time guarantees a long product life and high product quality.
