This newly released sword features a Full Tang Double Pegged construction meaning the blade goes through the Tsuka (handle) up to the Kashira (buttcap). The Tsuka on this masterpiece carries a red cotton cord Tsuka-Ito (Handle Wrap) over the imitation Same. One traditional Menuki (ornament) accompanies the Tsuka on both sides. Two Mekugi (bamboo peg) helps secure the Tsuka in place which makes it Full Tang so the handle would not come off. Following the Tsuka is the Fuchi (Collar) and the Tsuba (guard). The Tsuba was recreated to match the one No Name carries in Sword of the Stranger. The 29 inch blade carries a traditional Shinogi Zukuri shape which is most commonly use when creating a blade. It is made from 1045 High Carbon Steel which is then accompanies by the Blood Grove that helps it to balance and give a better swing. The Blade also has a visible Hamon which is known as Notare or Waive/Swell type. The Saya (scabbard) is made from solid wood with a solid black lacquer finish which is then decorated with the red cotton Sageo (cord). The Sageo is wrapped in the traditional Bull Horn fashion and tied around the wooden Kurigata.
