Our Bamboo Mat Katana features a chu-kissaki blade of Hanwei's own high-alloy HWS-2S steel,  which combines impressive performance with a striking O-choji hamon.  This steel is made in Hanwei's new factory,  with high-tech equipment,  producing a very pure,  advanced-metallurgy blade with excellent edge-holding capability and resilience.

The fittings on the katana feature a bamboo-themed black iron tsuba,  textured in a bamboo mat design with a jointed bamboo rim and highlighted with gold-tipped bamboo leaves.  The fuchi/kashira follow the same theme and the golden menuki feature a pair of sparrows.  The saya is finished in high-gloss lacquer with horn fittings.

Collect the set; a samurai wore two swords, the matching Wakizashi is also available to complete your collection.  Bamboo Mat Wakizashi

This is the blade I use as my daily practice blade both for drawing and cutting. ... I like the blade so much I want to have a backup around so I never have to be without one. -- Matthew Jensen
