To properly maintain this exquisite T10 high carbon steel clay tempered with hamon handmade black Katana with Bamboo Leaves Tsuba sword, customers should be aware of some common sense practices. The sword generally consists of three components: blade, sheath, and accessories. Customers should avoid storing the sword in damp places or exposing it to sour or salty substances. Additionally, to prevent surface corrosion caused by sweat, customers should avoid touching the sword with their bare hands. Lastly, maintenance is necessary for medium carbon steel, high carbon steel, pattern-welded steel (Damascus steel), and stainless steel blade, so oil should be applied to the sword's surface regularly.
