Jigane jigane jigane three
things we are told to look for when we kantei a sword. Yet how is it
formed? How does it relate to school and tradition? How do the experts
decide what is itame and what is mokume? What is standing hada? What is
sunken hada? How can a steel structure be described as “weak”? Join us
on Sunday and together we’ll find out and if you want real skin in the
game, bring out your pieces with distinctive hada.
