The Thaitsuki Sokueto Handachi Katana has a hand forged high carbon steel blade. The blade has been heat treated with the traditional clay-coated tempering method, giving it an edge hardness of 60 HRC and a 35 HRC body. This imbues the blade with a softer core for flex and shock absorption and a hardened edge that will stay keen and resist being dulled with proper use. The wave-like hamon from this treatment is quite visible.

The blade was finished with an entirely hand-finished polish and sharpening. The blade geometry has a short bo-hi to reduce weight, and a shinogi ridge line that tapers to the mune spine which keeps the blade strong, yet reduces some weight.

The tsuba, fuchi and kashira katana fittings are of blackened brass with silver accents. The habaki and seppa are likewise of handmade silver. The tsuka grip is overlaid with black rayskin and overlaid with an Ito white Japanese silk. Two silver menuki lie beneath the knotted Ito grip wrap.

The wooden Saya scabbard has been coated with black lacquer and has a knotted Sageo of white Japanese silk. The sageo is knotted to a kurigata of silver. The saya Koiguchi and Kojiri are of buffalo horn. The sword comes with a green silk sword bag.
