Kaeru - Traditional Samurai Sword by Paul Chen / Hanwei

The blade of the Kaeru katana is hand-forged and folded from powder steel,  with a medium-length (chu) kissaki.  The saya is deeply lacquered in black.  High quality ray skin (same)  is used on the tsuka.  The tsuka-ito is made of premium dark blue Japanese cotton.  The tsuba is expertly cast in stainless steel and patina'd like blacken iron,  with detailing in gold and silver and a frog on lily pad scene decoration.  The silk sageo compliments the theme of the Frog and is elegently hand woven in dark blue and moss green.  The fuchi and kashira are black with brass detailing and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn.  The habaki is a one-piece brass construction.

(Sageo colors may vary)


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





Reviews & Testimonials+
To be honest, I think that this is the most beautiful sword that Hanwei has ever turned out. I absolutely love the theme, the koshirae, the flow ... and all the little detailed touches. The hada is the best I've seen on a Hanwei, and that means on ANY production katana. -- Marc Kaden Ridgeway
