1) Select which Tsuba you wish to be mounted. All tsuba are made from extremely strong 1045 carbon steel with a black powder coated finish. Some are available in two versions, one solid black and the other with REAL 24K gold accents. The 'Front' is the Omote and is the side that faces the tsuka, the 'Back' is the Ura and faces the tip of the blade. An Aikuchi version (i.e. no tsuba at all for a very sleek appearance) is also available (pictured below).

2) Select tsuka (hande) ito color from 8 different color choices with either iron or brass fittings (Iron for maximum durability, brass - less durable but more attractive, pictured above).

3) Select saya style and color. A saya with a mother of pearl insert pattern and one with the top section wrapped in buffalo horn is available for an additional fee.

I wanted to hold off on my review until I got to use this sword art my dojo for tamashigiri. Now that I have I can write this with good conscious and say this is an excellent sword. Shipping it came in within a week. Design wise of aesthetic appeal was great. The wrapping on the tsuka and the personal color choice of the saya really makes it feel like my own. One issue I have is the sageo. Compared to others it seems rather of a cheap or thin fabric. Now for the functionality itself. At first I was worried of its capabilities but those doubts faded after cutting through the rolled up tatami mats. The weight distribution and cutting potential is phenomenal as going through 4 mats throughout the night it performed perfectly. To avoid confusion, I went through a total of 4 mats throughout the night not all at once. The 1095 carbon steel holds well and the tsuba is well fitted to not feel any type of looseness. What I think really contributes to it is the length of the tsuka and the blade. The tsuka being 11.5" and the blade being 27.5" allows for great handling and use, especially if you have long reach or a tall person. For dojo use this is a perfect sword to go with. Even if you are a beginner, like me, this is a good sword to go with. The price is well worth it as functionally it will do you good. Highly recommend picking up a cleaning kit and stand with it for better care and storage.
Our responseGreat review Carlos - and true enough, the Sageo is a bit average but the rest of the sword makes up for it I feel. Anyway, just wanted to clarify - these are actually T10 tool steel, not 1095 carbon steel. In terms of carbon content T10 and 1095 are ALMOST identical, but T10 is a tool steel alloy and has more flex durability than 1095 so is stronger and much less likely to break upon impact. Some people and companies do use the terms interchangeably, but while close in many respects, they are definitely not the same steel.
