The Sakura Higo Koshirae features blackened brass fuchi and kashira with a gold-inlaid cherry blossom theme and an iron tsuba with sukashi-style cherry trees as a theme. The saya lacquer is available in kuroro, kuroishime and chaishime. A sand-casted, a bubble-free zinc/aluminum alloy blade available up to 2.70 shaku. The tsuka is carefully hand-wrapped with cotton braids over black tsukasame and the sageo matches with the tsuka color. The menuki are of course also cherry themed. For those who prefer a kojiri attachment, the Sakura Higo Koshirae's saya can be customized with one that matches the sakura theme.
