The Shobu Wakizashi is a great companion piece to the Shobu Katana. Made in the same tradition and high quality materials as the katana, this wakizashi performs in superior functionality and grace. The overall motif mirrors that of the katana and would make a beautiful addition for the collector or the practitioner.
The hamon (temper line) and hada (grain/layers) on this forged and folded steel tanto blade are prominent in the polish.
