In contrast, the sakabato is made so that the cutting edge is on the side that curves inward. There is also no school of swordsmanship existing that employs them. However, historical use of "reverse-blade" weapons is evident from samples held at the Deoksu Royal Palace Museum in Korea.
Because Japan at one time invaded Korea, the possibility remains open that a sakabato was developed based on Korean examples. However, as aforementioned, no historical record nor archaeological evidence currently exists to support such a theory.
Some Tanto (Knives) have been found that have "reversed blades". These are labeled kubikiri, sometimes translated as "head cutter" or "doctor's knife".The sakabato is the main weapon of popular manga character Himura Kenshin. In the manga Rurouni Kenshin, and as such is typically depicted as a'pacifist' weapon by those willing to kill only as a last resort. Materials And Way Of Forge. Blade: The blade of the sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. Full hand forged, hand polished and hand sharpened. The blade was made of 1095 high carbon steel, and it has been laminated in a Maru style with a clay temper line. A special clay was 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 was also result of 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 blade is also very sharp. The blade has long Hi (blood groove) on each side, This not only allows for a lighter blade and audible feedback when swung.But also can balance the blade to achieve optimal performance.
