Storm Kama were large kama whose steel shined with a bluish tinge. They were revered in the Mantis Clan the same way sacred swords were viewed by the other clans. To forge them a Mantis smith located a fire lit by a lightning strike, brough the fire back to the smithy and stoked it until it reached extremely high temperatures. Real forging process was accompanied by prayers and chants to Osano-Wo performed by an assisting shugenja or a monk. When the work was completed the smith doused the fire in water, never to be used for another craft. [1]
