Wrapped over the wood is a red ray skin Same, and the tsuka-ito is black synthetic silk, wrapped over the red ray skin. Two bamboo mekugi secures the tang to the Tsuka. A plant design menuki is found on each side of the handle. The saya(sheath) of the sword is hard wood with a black&red high gloss finished. Black synthetic Sage-O has been tied around the bright copper Kurigaga (knob) of the scabbard. the Koiguchi has been hardened.
