If you look at the wood grain with a microscope.
You will be able to see the minerals that formed,
in the wood over thousands of years.
Very rare wood! 

 

 


Old Nata [Hand crafts ( umoregi )]

IMG_9547 (500x333).jpg
I found this old rusty nata about 75 years old,
without a handle & decided to renew it.
This old nata was more that likely made in Aizuwakamatsu, Fukushima.
The steel to make it might have once been a old samurai's weapon.

The handle I hand carved out of umoregi ( bog wood )

The name stamped on the blade is Tengu. 
I wet sanded it as not to heat the steel & lose the temper.
I've renewed about five natas, lots of fun!
