This reproduction of a classic Tachi by Dynasty Forge features a hand-forged Tamahagane blade with fittings lavishly embellished in gold to create an sword imbued with imperial aura and regalia - as part of Dynasty Forge’s premium Daimyo-class collectors swords this Tachi is a fitting centerpiece for a fine collection.

The Tamahagane steel blade has been folded as belied by its ‘’wood-grain’’ Hada patterning and it was also differentially tempered with the traditional clay tempering process to create a hardened edge with a visually vibrant hamon. The sword was hand-polished with Japanese stones to a fine finish. The metal tsuba, fuchi and kashira fittings are blackened and detailed in gold. The wooden tsuka grip is inlaid with genuine rayskin panels and tightly overlaid in knotted ito of dark blue silk with folded hishigami inserts laid beneath the folds to ensure a proper fit and shape for the grip wrap.

The saya scabbard is an exquisite piece and is carved to shape from wood and carefully lacquered with a tri-colored speckled lacquer and emblazoned with gold leaf Mon on both sides. Well-knotted blue silk ito is overlaid over panels of silk and a finely braided and multicolored sageo completes the saya for wear or display. Its metal fittings are blackened and detailed in gold to match the sword itself.

The Tamahagane used to create the sword is made from iron sand and traditional Japanese smiths smelted Tamahagane by heating this iron sand in clay tub kilns with carbon. When completed the clay was broken apart and discarded, leaving blooms of iron of varying carbon content. With these blooms the swordsmith could combine and create the billet for the sword in a variety of configurations and laminations.
