Hand Forged Samurai Sword - The standard Heavy cutter

The Katana of the Wind and Thunder set by Paul Chen / Hanwei is designed specifically for the martial artist who needs a sword to meet the demands of heavy target cutting.  The katana features a heavier and thicker blade with traditional furniture and fittings.  The Raiden tsuba is crafted in blackened stainless steel and the fuchi and kashira feature a Tomoe motif.  The tsuka is wrapped in genuine same (ray skin) and the tsuka-ito is premium Japanese black cotton.  The saya is finished in a traditional black laquer with a black cotton sageo.  The Wind and Thunder Katana is an excellent choice for batto-jutsu practitioners.  See Hanwei models SH5024 for the companion short sword, the Wind and Thunder Wakizashi.


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