The blade has been constructed from two grades of carbon steel. This technique is called a Sanmai Lamination. The Core of the Katana has been constructed from a high carbon steel allowing the cutting edge to be very hard and retain a sharp edge. The core is then sandwiched between medium carbon that reinforce the blades core but still allow flexibility. Each layer must be meticulously constructed then forged together. This requires a master smith, any crack or imperfection renders the entire blade useless. The result of this construction is a blade with an HRC of 40 degrees on the Mune and 57 HRC on the Ha.

    Just got my Tenga Sanmai Katana. Wonderful sword. Made in the traditional construction process, you will not find a better Katana. Very high quality laminated high carbon steel, strong fit and fittings, very solid saya. This is a real katana. Edge is razor sharp, and the hamon is perfect. If you are looking for a traditional katana that you can use in the manner a katana is suppose to be used in, this is it!!

    First let me say, I love this sword. I got the blue one because they were out of the black one when I ordered my sword. Let me tell you, this sword is no joke. The blade came sharp enough to shave the hairs off your arm and it is stunningly beautiful. No doubt about it, this is the nicest sword I own. The Hamon and wood grain pattern of the steel is a thing to behold. This sword isn't a replica or play thing. This sword is a true weapon designed to deal death in the hands of warrior. Yet, the sword is also as much a piece of art as it is functional. If you want a real sword that won't break the bank, then this sword is for you. Beautiful, functional, stunning, deadly; wow.

    Finally received the Tenga Sanmai Katana. i was offered the Blue one since the black one was out. so i said yes. the picture shown and what i got was different. it wasn't what i wanted. It was what i NEEDED. I love when the universe does that. in some mysterious way it came as a combination of the two. some blue with the saya but black ito on the handle not all blue as the picture for the blue was shown. and while the description said silk ito for the handle it came in cotton. which as it turns out is Perfect for me because my hands sweat alot normally but more so when training. silk would slip from my hands and i dont feel as in control. silk may look better but for true functionality cotton is the best. black ornamental sword bag other than the blue, which i prefer. the cleaning kit even came with directions which is great! also in a very strange coincidence or something only known in the flow of the universe is the design. a koi pond and fisherman with a koi fish (japanese gold fish) at the bottom. a surprise considering that i had just finished a painting inspired by old great japanese artists which WAS A KOI POND AND FISH IN SPRING!!! gave me goose bumps. and nothing compares to the blade. real clay tempered hamon, just stunning. everything was tight though a little rattle in the saya which is good for the practice of clean drawing. the sword slips into place easily but tightly with a click and can be held upside down without falling out. a common problem with Ronin Katanas. A superior blade, Musashi has done it again!
