The thing which made a whetstone powder-shaped is being packed into the Uchiko. White powder appears from the Uchiko when a sword body is struck with the Uchiko. There are two use purposes. The Uchiko removes the old oil which sticks to the sword body. Furthermore, the Uchiko beautifies the surface of the sword.

Ich bin mit dem Schwertpflegeset sehr zufrieden. Das Schwertpfegeset ist für den Anfang sehr gut und mit ihm konnte ich bislang mein Katana schön Pflegen. Zudem ist es nicht teuer und für jeden eine Empfehlung!

Für den Preiß erhält man ein gutes pflegeset nur leider kein Messing hammer vorhanden. Aber ansonsten ein super angebot hat sich gelohnt.

This product is okey overall. The oil is a bit dysfunctionaly bottled but other than that, it is fine. The fact that it does not have a mekugi hammer, makes this maintenance kit an average buy.

Gutes Schwertpflege Set. Schon mit ein paar Tropfen Öl lässt sich das Schwert gut schützen.

Das Pflegeset ist echt sein Geld wert. Schnelle Leiferung perfekt.

Das Schwertpflegeset ist auf jeden Fall sein Geld wert - gerade in der Verbindung mit einem anständigen Rostentferner bekommt man hiermit jedes Problem in den Griff.

Ein super Produkt entfernt sogar aktiv Rost teilweise schon bei Erstbehandlung kleines Manko das Reispapier könnte ein wenig mehr sein. Wer es kauft um große Mengen an Schwert oder Rost zubehandeln sollte sich 1 oder 2 Bögen Reispapier gleich mitbestellen.
