The name of this katana is Tsuba because it has beautiful a sacred ibis and reeds grasslandwith gold inlay, so it is called”a sacred ibis and reeds grassland”朱鹮 &草原 This blade is made with SK85 Special Steel, which is high carbon steel made in Korea.
However, the overall hardness of the iron rod is too strong, and therefore the iron rod is used after annealing and forging

Straw and coal was used to control the carbon content of the steel. The blade is made by a expert swordsmith.
(The expert is Jun-gi Moon, a student of Gunimasa Matsuba, a famous Japanese swordsmith.)
Once the blade is forged,俊基Jun Gi , cleans the blade to make sure it is free of oil and impurities and then applies the special clay mixture yakibatsuchi (a secret mixture of clay, polishing stone powder & ash or charcoal powder) to the blade, which makes hamon. The blade is then heated up to 720~780℃ and quenched in water, which rapidly cools the edge to form martensite(the hardest type of steel) and slowly cools the body due to its thicker clay coating and forming ferrite and pearlite(softer and more flexible).Basic togi(polishing) is then performed, along with any carvings or personalizations to the body of the blade. Nakago(tang) is polished and the swordsmith’s signature 俊基carved.
The front of the blade is given a hardness of about HRC 59, and the back of theblade is given a hardness of HRC of 45 degrees, making it easy to cut withoutimpact when cutting.
The blade is made by hand, so there may be slight hardness differences depending on the product.
