Boshi



A Japanese Wakizashi sword point, this is known as a Kisaki and the tempered area that apears as a patern in the point is known as the Boshi. This sword dates from the Koto period (pre 1596). In the main section of the blade can be seen the Hada or grain formed during forging.

Another great photo and good information. The Japanese seem to have a name for every different element of everything. Does anybody know if swords of other cultures have as many specifically named areas?--Chris

Many thanks Chris, it's a deep subject and I think that the Japanese seem to have a monopoly on the complexities of swordmaking! Cheers for all your interest Chris.
