"This is a Cheness through hardened 9260 Silicon Alloy Spring Steel wakizashi blade (same as those on Tenchi and Shura) Housed in a shirasaya. Information on the unique blade itself can be found at either the Tenchi page or Shura Page. Note: This sword does not come with sword bag or display box... The saya itself is the ""disposable"" protective container for the bare blade.The Shirasaya (literal translation: ""White scabbard"") refers to a plain, unlacquered, wooden scabbard traditionally used as a basic long term holder for blades. The wood is kept raw intentionally to allow for the blade to ""breath"" through the scabbard. (Lacquering, painting, or varnishing a shirasaya would defeat the purpose).The cross section shape of the shirasaya is very different than that of a working saya. This sword exhibits extremely tight tolerance between the saya and the tsuka as well as between the tsuka and mekugi as it is mounted first, then finished as one-piece. The blade is double pinned. Although this sword is fully sharpened as is with our tameshigiri cutters, a blade mounted in the shirasaya is not intended to be used for cutting. The shirasaya does not have a tsuba to prevent the hand from sliding upwards towards the blade, nor does it have wrapped handle to provide traction. As such, we do not recommend cutting with this blade until it is properly mounted"
