The soul of a samurai is mirrored in the duality of the sea itself; serenely calm and meditative waters can turn tempestuous and the fullness of its power founders the greatest of vessels and sweeps away the sturdiest of structures leaving nothing but sodden, splintered timbers and broken, impudent ambition in its wake. When the samurai is stirred to action it is only the foolish and the insane who would brazenly stand in defiance of the oncoming storm of steel melded wholly with warrior spirit.

A mirror of the sea itself the blade of this katana has a wave-like hamon denoting the boundaries of hard and softer steel created when it was differentially-tempered. In addition to this the blade has ripple-like patterning throughout which was created by folding the steel when it was formed into a blade. A long and deep bo-hi groove ensures that this katana is a swift striking blade which is quick and very responsive in the hands.

The tsuba, fuchi and kashira are supremely detailed and full of deeply embossed imagery and it is in the eye of the beholder as to whether the depict the gently swirling waters of a wave-kissed lagoon or a roiling tsunami. These silvered components are matched with a silvered habaki and seppa. The hardwood grip is inlaid with genuine rayskin and tightly bound in tsuka ito cord. Gold and silvered menuki wave menuki are fitted beneath these tight folds.

The saya scabbard of wood is finished with glossy, dark blue lacquer which is fittingly matched with fittings of carved and well-polished buffalo horn. A blue and white sageo cord completes the saya. Included with the sword is a cloth sword bag.

A matching Wakizashi for this sword is also available to allow for the creation of a matched daisho set.
