The MIZUCHI (大虬, 蛟龍、蛟, 美都知) meaning is a type of Japanese dragon or legendary serpent-like creature, either found in aquatic habitat or otherwise connected to water. Some commentators perceived it to have been a water deity. It is described in the ancient pseudo-chronicle Nihon Shoki

This Japanese sword has been hand forged using the ancient method of sword making. The blade of the sword has been constructed from T10 steel, and the blade has been clay tempered and water quenched, so you can see the beautiful hamon on the blade. The blade has a sharp in "Unokubi-Zukuri" style, there is one big Hi (blood groove) on each side which is from Habaki to the middle of the blade, the thickness on the back becomes thinner from the half of the blade towards the tip, but the back turns to thick near the kissaki.
