Classic Samurai Wakizashi

Matching the Paul Chen SH1018 Golden Oriole Katana,  the Golden Oriole Wakizashi features a deeply lacquered blue saya, Japanese cotton tsuka-ito,  and the Oriole appears on both the tsuka and again on the koshirae.  The blade from the Hanwei factory is hand-forged in high-carbon steel and is differentially hardened to display a distinct hamon.  Edge hardness is HRC 58~62,  back hardness HRC 38~42.  Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.


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