Shibuichi as you might guess from the name, it is a Japanese term. It translates to “one fourth," which is a reference to the traditional Japanese alloy mixture that historically has been composed of 25% silver and 75% copper. Back in the days of the Samurai, Shibuichi was used to make ornaments for the katana (Samurai sword). 

The 15% Shibuichi is the more common alloy as those with t he higher silver content tends to become stiff.

Try the Baldwins Patina for a a rich brown patina.
