In order to obtain the exceptional patina on the handle surface, the folded brass handle is corroded using a special process. The cutting core made of Blue Paper Steel is flanked by two tougher layers of steel. The black forged skin on the upper part of the blade carries the signature of the knife maker Nagao, partly inlaid in gold. Double-bevelled, not rustproof, hardness 63 HRC.
