The Wave style katana and Wakizashi are a custom offering from Bugei.
The use of Swedish powdered steel and sophisticated forging and heat treating results in outstanding quality and performance. Strength, edge holding, and beauty have all been significantly enhanced by the use of this steel. The blade evidences a gunome style hamon and a dramatic ayasugi-hada with mokume and masame. Also available on this sword is bo-hi ( a groove in the shinogi ji the length of the blade). The steel tsuba has an engraved nami (wave) pattern as does the fuchi and kashira. The nakago (tang) is secured with two mekugi (holding pins) to ensure strength, safety and longevity of use. A limited number of these blades will be available each year.
