This Katana is designed to be an efficient, robust and economical practice cutting sword; the blade is through-hardened 5160 high carbon steel. This type of steel, paired with mono-tempering, creates a blade that is a durable cutter. Unlike a differentially-hardened sword this kind of blade is much less likely to take a bend if a poor cut is made - ideal for the cutting beginner or someone who wants a no-frills practical cutting sword.

This version of the Mokko Renshu has a long bo-hi groove intended to reduce the weight of the sword along its thickest point whilst sacrificing little durability. This groove creates a more audible ‘’whoosh’’ when the sword strikes - the variable sound of this ‘’Tachikaze’’ sword wind can be used as a ‘’tell’’ on the angle of cut to trained ears.

The tsuba, fuchi and kashira hilt fittings are iron and the habaki and seppa are brass. The wooden tsuka grip is paneled with faux rayskin and overlaid with knotted black suede leather tsuka-ito cord. A pair of brass menuki are wrapped within the folds of the ito.

The saya scabbard is black lacquered wood with horn koiguchi and kojiri fittings. It is paired with a red sageo cord and left unknotted so that it is ready for practical wear.
