The Habaki is a single piece brass construction fitted over a copper Seppa. The Tsuba(guard) itself is brass with cock&man design. Another Seppa secures the Tsuba to the Tsuka of the sword. The Tsuka(handle) is wood laid over the tang of the blade. Wrapped over the wood is a black ray skin Same, and the tsuka-ito is coffee color synthetic cord. Two bamboo mekugi secures the tang to the Tsuka. A cock design copper menuki is found on each side of the handle. The saya(sheath) of the sword is hard wood with a black high gloss finished.
