Tosho x Tatsuto Yamano Tamahagane Dog Tag 925 Silver Chain (Ivan Polished / #001)
These unique dog tags are made from Tamahagane (a type of steel traditionally used in Japanese swords) forged by Tatsuto Yamano and polished by Tosho Knife Art's co-founder, Ivan Fonseca. The Tamahagane plate in which these dog tags are made of is from a Wakizashi made by Yamano-san (currently available only at Tosho Knife Arts).
This dog tag has a pattern in the steel called Matsukawa, and is reminiscent of the wood grain found in Pine. Ivan utilizes NSK diamond stones to prepare the steel surface before moving on to Natural Stones. For the final step, Ivan then uses sword polishing techniques to bring out the intricate details and colours of the Tamahagane. We are absolutely thrilled to release these truly one-of-a-kind pieces.
How to properly care and use Tamahagane jewelry:
-Keep dry during and after wearing it.
-Please do not wear Tamahagane jewelry near the skin if you are sensitive or allergic to metal jewelry.
