This is the best sword you will find in the price range. 2&Blade: The blade of the sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. Full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened. The blade was made of 1095 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru style with a clay temper line. A special clay was applied to the blade by hand, using a thin covering near the edge and a thicker layer over the rest of the blade.
This results in a relatively quicker cooling of the edge during quenching, producing a hard edge and softer back. The beautiful real hamon on the blade was also result of the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). 3&Saya: The saya (sheath) of the sword is hualee wood. 4&This is a sharpened, super, truly battle ready Samurai sword very suitable for iaido and kendo superior.
