Masterpiece of Asian forge- craft

- The swords’ blades are hand-forged out of 1095 carbon steel
- The sharpened blades have been differentially hardened in traditional kind as 
  a result of applied clay and they’ve got an original Hamon-line 
- 60 HRC at the ha and 40 HRC at the mune
- The wooden hilts (Tsuka) are completed with original ray skin (Same)
- The hilt-wrappings (Tsuka-Ito) of black cotton are applied in traditional kind
- Two Menukis were put into the hilts
- The handle-ends are particularly long and fastened to the hilt with 2 pins of 
  bamboo (Mekugi)
- The sheaths (Saya) are made out of wood
- Manufacturing followed historical examples

It’s the cutting-test Katana with complex applications. The fittings are decorated 
with the Hannya mask. The Hannya mask has its source in the Japanese 
NOH-theatre and is probably the best-known mask. It is symbol for the woman 
that transformed into a demon because of her rage and jealousy.
