The blade was made of 1095 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru style. The blade comes with full tang and a chu-kissaki. The steel has been throughly refined and tempered, a special clay is applied to the blade by hand, using a thin covering near the edge and a thicker layer over the rest of the blade.
