Hand Forged Japanese TACHI Sword Hazuya Polished Full Tang Blade
This japanese samurai sword TACHI has been hand forged by the ancient method of sword. The blade was made of folded steel. AISI 1060 High Carbon Steel has been folded 10 times creating 1024 layers for superior strength and flexibility. The visible tenuous undulating grain on the blade was resulted from folded repeatedly during forging. 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. This results in a relatively quicker cooling of the edge during quenching, producing a hard edge and softer back. the beautiful real hamon on the blade is also result from the differential cooling of the blade (quenching and tempering). This blade has been hand polished with multiple grade sharpen stone by Japanese method, which made the surface of the blade like a mirror, the more importance is that the blade was polished by HAZUYA which is a very thin Uchigumori stone fixed with paper, Hazuya is a specific stone to bring up hamon, the stone is very fine and soft against the steel. The blade of this sword is completely finished with Hazuya. The work is done to get mirror-like surface on shinogi-ji and edge. The tip of the blade is a Chu Kissaki(medium length) with Bo-Shi. This blade has a shape in "SHINOGI-ZUKURI" style which is the most general style for TACHI/KATANA and WAKIZASHI, there is NO BO-Hi to enhance its strength and cutting power.
