the blades are not mass produced or manufactured, they were hand forged with traditional construction methods, sanmai and kobuse. I personally made the 3D design construction, geometry and dimensions as part of an engineering project on auto-cad. the sanmai construction is made with 1095 steel at the spine and edge with the sides that are more flexible low carbon steel. kobuse was made with high carbon 2.0 percent 1095 steel at the core and edge and sandwiched with low carbon spring steel at 0.44 percent for flexibility the parts were put together in Germany.
