Once the blade is finished, it’s finally time to assemble the sword. Usually, it’s a different person from the smith than the smith who does this – the Assembler.

The process of building a Saya and Tsuka from hard wood can be pretty tedious and long – it has to be precise since they have to fit perfectly.
Tamagahane steel is always created in a Tatara, a traditional Japanese sword-steel smelter. There aren’t many Tatara functioning in Japan today, and even fewer that produce steel with the grade needed for swords; the Tatara is where Tamahagane is actually manufactured. The foundation costs of making Japanese swords are significantly more expensive than utilizing a flat bar of contemporary steel because of the high costs associated with creating Tamahagane and its limited availability. Tamagahane is distinguished by having a larger carbon content than standard steel, giving it some unique properties. However, using too much carbon would result in a brittle blade, so swordsmiths must discover the ideal ratio. Today’s Tamahagane steel is made with between 1% and 1.5% carbon. In contrast, it often contains between 3% and 4.5% carbon in feudal Japan.
