At full scale, this katana model is about 41 inches long. These models have been designed so that two pieces of 3/16th inch rod can be inserted to reinforce the katana. You will need 36 inches of rod total, one piece of rod 18.5 inches long, and one piece of rod 17.5 inches long.
The kanji engravings are embossed on the model for easy painting and added detail, and are not visual textures added only for the model render images like on some similar models.
The scabbard has been designed with some additional room on the inside so that the inside edges can be lined with felt to protect the katana as it slides in and out. The model's handle has been left bare so that a traditional ito cord wrap can be added.
The file set comes with both the full pieces, and the pieces cut for printing on smaller printers.
The stand has the engraving 霞 (kasumi) which is a Japanese kanji for mist.
