 “Hada”

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.
