This katana features the ‘’Nami’’ (Ocean Waves) upon its fittings. Whether they symbolize an inner harmony or represent the turbulence of the tsunami is in the eyes of the wielder.

Made by Dynasty Forge, this wave Katana is made from three high carbon steels of 1095, 1080 and 1060 folded together into a single blade. This folding process creates a Tamehagane-like ‘’Hada’’ pattern upon the blade with the appearance of wood grain. The three steels are folded 8-12 times before being differentially heat-treated with clay, the process by which the blade receives its wave-like hamon of white-steel.These folding processes were traditionally done to minimize impurities in steel (the initial quality being lesser than modern steel) and to give it strength and flexibility with a mixture of different steels with these properties. The blade is machine polished, with the final polishing being done by hand. A deep Bo-Hi groove runs the length of the blade and ends just before the Chu-Kissaki tip. The blade is solidly mounted into its tsuka with bamboo mekugi, whose removal allows for maintenance disassembly or customization if desired.

The tsuka grip is of wood, covered in rayskin ‘’same’’. A woven black silk tsuka-ito is tightly wrapped over the same, with a pair dragon menuki beneath. The saya scabbard is wood, coated in glossy black lacquer with a matching woven black silk sageo. The katana comes with a blue cloth sword bag.
