English term or phrase:general fit and finish
You'll find all the sword dimensions listed below. The one that isn't listed is the sori (the amount of curve in the blade). On this particular sword it is approximately 5/8 ". One of the unique features is the extreme hourglass design of the handle. Starting with a width of 40mm, narrowing to 32mm near the center, then back to 37mm at the end. With few dissenting votes, most customers find it extremely comfortable. It is dual-pinned utilizing real rayskin, and the ***general fit and finish*** of the handle area we find very well done. It is of a full-tang design and double-pinned. One curiosity (we have not yet disassembled one to be sure), is that the two-tone gold and black menukis appear to be plastic. The tsuba is nicely done, but a little rough.
