This is the T10 Clay Tempered Shirasaya Wakizashi in rosewood finish. The shirasaya style of Japanese sword mount was primarily meant for storing blades when they were not in use. The shirasaya with its natural rosewood finish allowed for the wood to breathe better and contract/expand with weather changes while keeping the precious sword inside as clean as possible. This is a clay hardened wakizashi that exhibits one of the most appealing Hamon temper lines that is authentic and distinct as a result of traditional Clay Tempering Processes. The rosewood tsuka matches the saya finish and features a double bamboo mekugi pin.The habaki is made of brass. The saya throat koiguchi is lined with black polymer for added strength against cracking. The Kissaki is has a well defined Yokote. The sword is full tang and fully sharpened. It is capable of cutting medium targets such as bamboo, water bottle, small tree branches. The handle is also made of high quality natural rosewood.
Please view above picture A. This sword has been hand forged by our Japanese traditional method, Clay Tempering. The gray area is the clay covered range.
The Smith puts clay on the blade and leaves the edge clear. The blade will be heated to red then quenched into water. Therefore, the clay covered area helps the blade to keep its flexibility. The crystal clear natural hamon line is achieved from clay tempering.
