The blade of the sword has been handmade from 1060 High Carbon steel in a folded pattern. It is sharp and fully functional. This pattern was achieved by painstakingly folding each layer of steel to create the grain pattern.
The balance of the blade is perfect and the sword is completely functional. It can be used for Iaido, drills, practice and test cutting.
