The name of this sword is derived from its red-brown lacquered scabbard (saya), where the texture of the wood is still visible. This sword is used for iaito.
The blunt blade is made in the Shinogi-Zukuri style with fuller (Bo-Hi). It is handmade from 420 stainless steel. The grip is covered with rye hide and wrapped with black cotton in thie Hineri-Maki style. The long tang construction is fixed to the grip with two bamboo pins (mekugi). This means the grip can be replaced completely. The habaki and seppa, between tsuba and blade, are made of brass. The tsuba (hand guard), fuchi (ring on top of the tsuba), menuki (grip decoration) and kashira (pommel) are made of metal.
The wakizashi is 78 cm long, with a blade of 52,5 cm and a grip of 25 cm. The weight is 880 cm excluding scabbard.
The wakizashi is delivered with a textile sleeve, a collector's box and a certificate.
