High Performance Hanwei Samurai Sword

The Lion Dog Katana features an O-Kissaki blade of Hanwei's own high-alloy HWS-1S steel,  which combines superior performance with an outstanding O-choji hamon.  This steel is made in Paul Chen's new Hanwei factory,  with high-tech equipment,  producing a very pure advanced-metallurgy blade with the best edge-holding capability and resilience of any blade ever produced by Hanwei.  The outstanding performance characteristics of blades forged from HWS-1S steel derive from a combination of the careful selection of alloying elements and a complex processing procedure,  basically involving the manipulation of the steel’s carbon content across the blade section.  This results in a very tough and resilient blade with a hard,  highly abrasion-resistant edge.

The Katana's detailed fittings feature a Lion-dog themed black iron tsuba,  with matching fuchi/kashira and golden peony menuki.  The complex saya features a gloss-lacquered ribbed section at the koiguchi/kurikata with the balance spatter-lacquered for a very attractive appearance.  The premium sageo is hand woven in black.

(Sageo colors may vary)


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