The Akai bow with max. 50 lbs is a strong bow - made of rattan and is flattened on the draw side, however, the front part is rounded (half circle). The bow tips and are bent in shape as that of the Marksman-bow. The bow is in the loosened state 127cm long = 50 inches, but needs due to the strong curvature a 50"-long-string.

The Akai bow max. 50 lbs has an draw characteristics similar to a 50 "recurve horseman-bow.

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
