"The ""Tenchi"" (Heaven and Earth) katana uses our most durable material for its blade construction. The blade body is a 9260 silicon alloy carbon spring steel. It is handsomely finished with a cast brass Musashi Double Ring tsuba that is thicker than the standard steel tsubas with an antiqued finish. This sword has a heftier and more antiqued look and feel than other steel fitted blades.The nakago (tang) on all our new standard blades have increased in taper and finished cleanly. Tsuba is constructed of solid brass with antiqued finish, kashira and fuchi are alloy with a matching antiqued brass finish, with the tsuba in a beefy Musashi double ring design. Additionally, bo-hi geometry and kissaki have all been improved from our first generation blades.NOTE: We are using a modified heat treatement method on the second generation non-bo hi version of this blade to improve the performance of the solid blade body. Heat treatment of the bo hi version remains the same as those from the first generation.The no-bo hi version blade has a more forward center of gravity heavier weight. This type of blades have more lateral strength and are easier for tameshigiri from the weight and the reduced drag. Whereas the varient with fuller is better for kata practice, the no-fuller varient is better for cutting practices."
