The Paper Crane katana is without a doubt the greatest achievement in katana making by Hanwei.
The blade is made of Tamahagane steel.
Saya has a kozuku. Kozuka is decorated with musical instruments of the theater. The paper crane theme is carried over to the exquisite hand-woven silk sageo, the result of many hours of skilled handwork.
Tamahagane steel is produced by building and firing a tatara, a traditional Japanese sword steel smelter. This charcoal furnace produces very pure steel from iron sand, and this steel core or bloom can be broken up and separated into high and low carbon pieces, which form skin steel and blade core steel. The steel is repeatedly forged and bent, to remove slag and voids, and then wrapped around a steel core before the resulting billet is forged into a blade, traditionally known as kobuse construction. Careful heat treatment, shaping and polishing reveal the solid hada or layered pattern of the blade and the white particles of the hamon or temper line. While this process results in aesthetic qualities that are much admired by collectors, it also produces a highly functional blade, as the high carbon content of the steel jacket provides a very hard edge, while the softer core steel gives the blade strength and shock absorption. .
