Shirasaya O Tanto by John Lee

As Shirasaya refers to a special sword mount, which was formerly used for the gentle keeping the blade. Especially in times of peace, the blades were kept in it perfectly protected. The unpainted Magnolia wood absorbs the moisture inside the sheath, leading them to the outside and thus protects the blade from rust. Many Shirasaya were provided with a "Sayagaki", an inscription, which gave information on Smith, Origin and classification. On the streets of Japan, the inconspicuous outfit was no handle and guard, especially in the late 19th Century use. At the time of the emperor performing Samurai swords banned. The Shirasaya mount, which saw a wooden sword and wooden stick was very similar, a clever way to wear the sword still unnoticed.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
