Hand-forged blade from 1095 carbon steel, hardened and differentiated by clay coating with real hamon line. The Rockwell hardness of the blade edge is 60 ° HRC and the back of the blade 40 ° HRC.
The blade is made of carbon steel 1095 and has no soft core. It is suitable for cutting of straw mats and thin bamboo.
Supplied with brass Habaki and unpainted wood scabbard Kurigata, Koiguchi and Kojiri at Saya are made of buffalo horn.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
