Each piece in the Kami set has a hand-forged and folded K120C powder steel blade with a long (o) kissaki featuring a hand engraved Fudo Horomono and Bo-Hi. The folding process creates exceptional hada, or grain pattern, along the blade accentuated by the distinctive hamon. Saya are deeply lacquered in red, with a black ring-carved section at the mouth. The ray skin used on the tsuka is of the highest quality, and the tsuka-ito on the Katana and Wakizashi and the sageo on all three pieces are woven from best quality Japanese silk. The Fuchi, Kashira, Kojiri, Koiguchi and Kurigata are all made from blackened bronze, with decoration in relief and selective detailing of copper, silver and gold. The Habaki is of two-piece construction, the inner section being copper and the outer section gold-plated brass.
