Q: Are your swords full tang and functional?
A: Yes all our swords are full tang and fully functional. Our high carbon steel blades are hand forged in one solid piece. The full tang extends into the handle and is secured by two pegs (mekugi).
Q: How are your swords made?
A: Our swords are hand forged using traditional Japanese methods to create the perfect blade. Each blade is repeatedly heat treated and meticulously hammered into shape before being oil quenched.
Clay tempering can also be added to the forging process which hardens the blade edge further and creates a more flexible spine. This also results in a stunning natural wave pattern hamon.
The blade is then hand polished to a mirror finish and sharpened or unsharpened at your request. Once the blade is complete, it is custom fit to its own handle and sheath for a perfect fit.
Q: Can your swords be disassembled?
A: Yes, our swords can be disassembled by tapping out the 2 pegs (mekugi) that secure the tang in the handle. Once these are removed the handle slides off the tang and the rest of the fittings can be removed to reveal the naked blade.

English Letters (note the letters will look black on a silver blade)
