The Mountain Oni Katana has a blade of sharpened and highly polished T10 steel; the blade edge was imbued with a lively hamon when it was differentially-hardened. This treatment gives the blade a very hard edge with a distinctive, flame-like hamon line, whilst the body of the blade remains softer to impart a degree of shock absorption into blade. The spine of the blade was left solid with no bo-hi groove to retain the full cutting power of the sword. The tip has the elongated form of the O-Kissaki and the tip features a geometric yokote.

The tsuba, fuchi and kashira fittings are iron and the tsuba prominently features a menacing Oni demon with brass embellishments. A meditative samurai hero is on the reverse. The habaki and seppa are brass. The wooden tsuka grip is inlaid with panels of rayskin and wrapped with tightly knotted black silk ito wrap; two brass menuki are fitted within the ito folds.

The saya scabbard is carved from wood and finished with a textured black lacquer and matching, knotted black sageo cord. A black cloth sword bag is included.
