Each tachi has undergone a lot of grinding, making the blade very sharp, allowing you to perform Tameshigiri cutting. In addition, higher level tachi will use more different advanced grinding methods, which means that craftsmen will spend a few more days on this tachi to make it sharp like a razor.

How to sharpen a tachi?

Shaping work using an uchigumori stone to remove rust and scratches.

The blade is then passed over progressively smaller and finer stones in an effort to remove the marks from the uchigumori stone.

Hazuya stones glued to traditional Japanese paper are then used in order to remove the microscopic scratches that are left from the previous polishing.

Finally a Jizuya stone is used and rubbed on the surface of the blade, this is a long process done until the stone wears out.

Tachi Parts and terminology

Why is the surface of the blade smeared with oil? Can I remove the lubricating oil?

The purpose of using oil to maintain the blade is to form an oil film on the surface of the blade to isolate the oxygen in the air and prevent the daily storage from oxidizing and rusting the blade.So it is not recommended that you erase. Additionally, Katana should not be placed in direct sunlight or in damp or excessively dry areas. If you touch the back of the katana with your hand, or if you have dripped acidic liquid on the blade, you need to wipe it clean with a clean cotton cloth before spraying maintenance oil again.
