Wave Katana; a light and fast samurai sword

The Wave Katana from Kaneie Sword Art is an exceptionally balanced, light and fast sword suitable for collection or martial arts practice. The sword is named for the Wave (Nami) themed fittings and crab menuki.

The blade is differentially hardened T10, hand polished in the traditional manner to a full "art" polish. Details in the hamon are exquisite and must be seen in person to truly appreciate. The blade is a light and fast cutter, with little niku (appleseed edge geometry). Therefore this sword should only be used on traditional cutting targets such as tatami.

It is hard to find such a polished package outside of Japan or the world of non Japanese master smiths and it gives the causal collector and practitioner a chance to own something close to the look and feel of a nihonto, without paying through the nose. -- Josh Marlan
