The soul (tamashi) of the Samurai has traditionally been the strongest weapon utilized on the battlefields of ancient Japan. Unbreakable where weapons may break, and unyielding where flesh may fail, the spirits of these legendary warriors were the epitome of unwavering resolution and pure willpower.
Forged in fire. Tempered with precision.
Masterfully crafted with 100% pure katana steel, our pendants are the perfect companion for life's battles.
Every TAMASHI is hand-crafted by a master smith, and is completely unique in its existence. Each pendant is 1.5 inches long by 1 inch wide, and comes with a custom bamboo box.
Custom engraving is also available for those who wish to personalize their pendants to their tastes. Simply select the "custom engraving" option, and send us an image of your design and order number to email@example.com
As the smith does not mix chromium into the metal, your TAMASHI pendant should be kept away from water. We have applied a layer of lacquer to give the pendant a measure of water resistance, but it is always better to be safe than sorry! As this layer will eventually wear off over the course of normal wear, it is highly recommended to replace it with a jewelry sealant (or an alternative) in a month or so to protect the finishing of the pendant and maintain its water resistance.
Due to popular demand, we now offer a stainless clad variant of our TAMASHI pendant! The metals used in the forging of this piece are of a lower carbon content with a limited chromium mix in order to provide greatly increased resistance to water based corrosion. Please note that this metal is not fully stainless, and thus should not be left exposed to water for extended periods of time.
