These handcrafted iaito stand out for their classic line and for their functional quality, which is well coupled with the traditional manufacturing techniques and the materials used.
The blades are carbon hardened to a hardness of about 40 HRC after which, after being hammered by hand, the back and sides are covered with clay and the wire is tempered to 60 HRC for excellent cutting, penetration and flexibility. The blade is then hand-polished on stone and the sword is finished in every single detail.
Given the high craftsmanship nature of these swords, we would like to clarify that the photo is purely for illustrative purposes as designs of tsuba fuchi and kashira may differ from the one shown here as well as the weights and measures of the sword may differ, albeit slightly. .
