Handle Material: Genuine Ray skin + Hard wooden. 1-The balde was made of Damascus steel, it was Fully hand forged in a completely traditional manner.
AISI 1060 High carbon steel and 1095 high carbon steel were smelted and pounded to fold 13 times to creat 8192 layers, Not only can remove the remain impurities of the carbon steel and better distribute the carbon to form the blank, But also allow the layers to bend at rates that differ very, very slightly when lateral (sideways)stress is placed upon the blade. Layering the steel creats resilience (toughness)that makes each par of the blade more likely to bend, and spring back, but not broken. The obvious undulating texture on the balde was resulted from folded repeatedly during forging. 2-The blade would be fully hand shaping, and then our swordsmiths has applied clay to the sword to control the rate at which the blades cools when quenced after grinding(rough finishing).
Also, the clay ensures carbon does not simply escape during this process. What's more, our swordsmith went a step further: Applying different thicknesses of clay to the edge and spine(back) of the blade respectively(Differential hardening). After the clay process, heat treating the blade, then quickly oil and water quenching (tempering) to make the edge(coated with a thin layer)cool faster, while the spine(coated with a thick layer) cools slower.Thus, what began an unavoidable consequence of the process was, a beautiful real hamon was appeared on the balde, turn into a mark of creativity and an element of beauty. 3-The result of this process compounds the benefits of forging the sword with a sofer core.
The edge of the blade becomes very hard and strong, able to retain an edge befitting the marvelous reputation of these exquisite weapons. The spines hardens, but does not become as hard, giving the spine a degree of springiness that immensely enhance the resilience of the weapon when swung in actural pratice.
