The Samurai Wakizashi is the strongest and best performing Japanese style blade
ever offered at this price. The use of Swedish powdered steel, used in the construction of these shinogi zukuri wakizashi, results in outstanding
quality and performance. Strength, edge holding, and beauty have all been significantly enhanced by the use of this steel along
with the complex folding process. The thicker, robust blade with ample niku ("meat") evidences a gunome style hamon and a dramatic ayasugi-hada with mokume and masame.
The tsuba is steel and matches the samurai katana. The fuchi and kashira also feature Samurai drawing and cutting
engraved in them. The forging process for this sword can be seen on our website. Each of these blades is individually hand forged
and folded, heat treated, and mounted. Even with these design parameters each sword is unique. Performance testing has shown them
to be strong cutting blades with a good resistance to deflection. The saya and the silk tsuka ito are black.
