The Cold Steel Imperial Series O Tanto features a sharpened, mirror polished 1050 carbon steel blade.
The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of polished brass and each hilt is covered in Save (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black cord. A beautiful brass Menuki (small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as it possibly can.
The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove).
