The Tamahagane San Tsubame Micarta blade is hand-hammered about half way down from the spine. The whole blade is then sandblasted. The sandblasting only affects the softer SUS410 outside layers leaving the outside layers with a matte finish and the VG No. 5 core with a mirror polish. The hammering and sandblasting gives a very rich appearance. Tamahagane San Tsubame Micarta starts to taper only after the hammered portion of the blade. Since the San Tsubame is tapered less, it's slightly heavier.
