The Ginrei irons come from the same forging die as the Itobori irons and are identical until they are manually processed by Master Takai-san himself.
In contrast to the Itobori technique, the Ginrei irons have a traditional, smooth sole grind.
The specialty of the Ginrei iron is the subsequent rework of the material by another manual forging process. This technique creates the inimitable ginrei look, which is based on traditional Japanese knife and sword making techniques (e.g. Gyuta, Santoku, Bunka, etc.).
Like most of the MTG Studio products, each MTG Ginrei iron is available in eight different coatings (see Specification Tab).
