The blade is 12-3/4” long and is .31” / 5/16” thick near the habaki or brass sleeve. The long “swedge” on top of the blade is not sharp and adds to the nice balance of the blade.  Folded steel is used of 1060 and 9250 type. Even though the blade is polished, some laminations can be seen at close examinations.  Hardened edge called hamon is used by selective hardening. Long tang is 12-1/4” long.

A round or egg shape cross section wooden pole is used to mount the Nagianata blade. Other possibilities are shorten the tang to produce a tanto or add a very long handle for a nagamaki.
