Limited Edition Lotus themed Wakizashi - the perfect pair to Citadel's Lotus Katana

Citadel's swords and knives are completely hand-made one off customs made entirely in their small shop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We've asked them to make for us a few in the same style, but made in the same way as their custom swords. Crafted individually from start to finish, each one is of course a bit unique in it's own way. Limited to just 20 swords, each is signed by the smith on the nakago with the sword number and comes with a matching certificate.

The "Wakizashi" or Short Sword was worn with the longer katana, when the pair matched in theme they were considered a Daisho. However, when the katana was surrendered upon entering a home the wakizashi was not, making it truly the side-arm of the Samurai!

The fittings are hand cut and shaped from pure iron, an extremely tough material that takes a deep black patina and needs minimal maintenance. Iron will bend under tremendous shock instead of break, a feature any samurai would appreciate. The Lotus design of the tsuba is in an older, simpler style (kyo sukashi, maru gata) that reflects the nature of the sword.

The tsuka or handle and scabbard are hand carved to fit each individual sword ensuring a proper fit. The it or handle wrap is of black natural silk imported from Japan. It is tightly wrapped around the full same-gawa or ray skin wrap with the proper hishigami or paper triangles present to ensure a long life of use. The saya is lacquered to a semi-gloss finish with buffalo horn mounts (koiguchi, kurikata and kojiri).

These are extremely limited in numbers to be produced (20 only!). Each blade is signed on the tang with the model and number and includes a stamped certificate of authenticity.

These swords are entirely hand-made by Citadel.
