Hand Forged & Folded PowderSteel Blade
This new katana from Hanwei / Paul Chen, The Tori Xl Light Katana, is without a doubt one of the finest Japanese practitioner's swords to ever grace our site.
Designed by master sword smith, Paul Chen, the Tori starts with a masterfully hand crafted blade which is folded out of high purity ASSAB K120 C Swedish steel. The polish is done so as to bring out an outstanding hada (grain pattern)
The blade is formed with the new geometry of the XL series so cutting is a breeze. We have had customers who have purchased other swords from us and when they cut with this sword they have reported to us the balance and feel is like no other.
The beauty doesn't stop with the blade. The scabbard of this samurai sword is a "fingerprintless" brown lacquer with genuine buffalo horn accents and a "clam shell" holding portion. Iron tsuba with crane design and a handle wrapped in gorgeous brown suede with black same (rayskin) underneath. A simply incredible example of traditional sword making from Paul Chen.
The Tori XL Light katana is an all-new design from CAS/Hanwei that incorporates truly elegant furniture with the functionality only a high end katana can provide. Featuring a traditional flying crane tsuba, brown leather tsuka-ito over black same and a dark brown/black saya, this is undoubtedly one of the most elegant Japanese swords mounts ever crafted by CAS/Hanwei.
