How to Use the Kit

Mekugi-Nuki- Brass mallet: Unscrew the short pin on top of the Mekuginuki, then place the bigger end of the pin on top of the Mekugi and hammer gently. When the Menuki is partially removed, turn the pin and finish the job.  Mekugi (peg) removal tool. A brass hammer or wooden mallet and a punch can also be used.  We do not recommend that steel tools be used that could damage the blade.

Uchiko Ball- Finely ground stone powder (hazuya and jizuya) in a silk ball: The blade should first be wiped with the cleaning cloth to remove the old oil. Uchiko may then be applied in one of two ways. The most common method is to gently tap the Uchiko ball every few inches along the flat of the blade on one side and then the other. The more traditional method is to hold the blade vertically and tap the ball every few inches along the spine. The fine powder particles will be drawn to the blade while the heavier powder particles will fall past the blade. The powder should then removed from the blade with another cloth wiping over the spine from hilt to tip in one direction. Remember, you are simply removing the powder and excess oil at this point – you’re not polishing nor do you want to scratch the blade. Once the powder has been removed the blade may be inspected, and a new light coating of oil may be applied to the blade, using a soft clean cloth or tissue. 

Sword Oil- Use the cleaning cloth to wipe a light coating of oil on the blade.
