Due to its layered structure, the blade is stronger and more rigaid than those using only single steel. This completely original design achieved by Japanese artisan is the only blade of its kind in the world. Moreover, the innovative and fine ripple pattern which is forged superbly makes it possible to achieve extraordinary sharpness. The handle is made of Maple tree.

Clad metal is produced by forging different layers of metal together, taking advantage of the strength of each piece as an integrated unit while ensuring any weaknesses are balanced out by each layer. The steel is composed of a perfect blend that produces a long-lasting, greatly long-sharpness, hard to bend or break, and rust resistant.
