This sword maintenance kit include:
Wooden Storage Box
The wooden storage box is a beautifully crafted container designed to house all the tools required for cleaning and maintaining your katana. The compact design ensures it's easy to store or transport, while the durable wood protects the valuable tools inside. Having a dedicated box also makes it easy to keep track of your cleaning supplies, so you're never left without the tools you need.
The microfiber cloth is used in the final step of the cleaning process. After using the Uchiko to apply and spread the stone powder, you use the cloth to wipe it away. The cloth's soft microfiber material ensures a thorough clean without scratching or damaging the sword's delicate surface. The cloth also can be used to gently apply oil to the blade, ensuring an even, protective layer.
The Mekugi-Nuki is a specialized tool designed to safely remove the Mekugi from your katana. It's critical to use a tool like this to avoid damaging the handle or the blade of the sword. With the Mekugi-Nuki, you can easily take apart your sword for thorough cleaning and maintenance, and then reassemble it with confidence.
The Uchiko is a silk ball filled with stone powder used for polishing the katana blade. You gently tap the Uchiko against the blade to distribute the powder, and then polish it off with a cloth, leaving the blade clean and shiny. This traditional Japanese tool helps to remove old oil, fingerprints, and minor surface blemishes without damaging the blade.
Mekugi are small pegs, traditionally made from bamboo, that hold a katana's handle to the blade. In the cleaning process, you'll need to remove the mekugi to fully access the blade. Over time, mekugi can wear out or even break, so having a spare in your cleaning kit is essential to maintaining the integrity of your sword.
Oil Bottle (empty)
You are given an empty oil bottle to fill with the protective oil of your choice. You should lightly oil your katana blade after cleaning and polishing it to stop rust and corrosion. The container is delivered empty since the type of oil used might vary depending on personal choice and the demands of the blade.

Please note that our katanas are hand forged according to the Japanese tradition and know-how. Depending on the complexity of the model, our blacksmiths may require additional time to forge your Japanese sword.
Wooden Storage Box
The kit begins with a beautifully crafted wooden storage box, perfect for safely storing your cleaning tools. It's compact and durable, making it ideal for travel and long-term use.
The kit includes a premium quality microfiber cloth, uniquely designed to remove fingerprints and smudges from your katana's blade. Unlike traditional cloths, it won't scratch or damage the delicate surface of the blade, preserving its integrity and luster.
Uchiko: The Traditional Blade Polisher
The Uchiko ball, filled with the finest quality stone powder, serves as an effective polisher for your sword. Gently tapping it against the blade distributes the powder, which can then be polished off, leaving a stunning shine that respects the traditional Japanese method of cleaning.
Mekugi-Nuki: A Specialized Tool
In order to maintain your sword effectively, our Katana Cleaning Kit includes a Mekugi-Nuki. This tool is explicitly designed for safely removing the Mekugi without causing any damage to your katana, making the cleaning process smoother and safer.
The Essential Mekugi
In any Katana Cleaning Kit, the Mekugi are essential. These pegs, made from bamboo, are crucial in securing your katana's handle to the blade. Our kit contains two Mekugi, giving you a spare for those unexpected situations.
Empty Oil Bottle for Customized Care
Finally, our kit includes a small, empty bottle for oil of your choosing. For your katana to last as long as possible, the oil serves as a shield for your blade, preventing rust and corrosion. You have the freedom to select the preferred oil with this empty bottle, allowing you to customize the care to meet your unique demands.
