Description

Includes a protective cloth bag and maintanence kit!

In simplicity lies great beauty, an axiom stunningly validated by the Hanwei Golden Oriole Katana. The story told by the richly detailed tsuba is of a mantis stealthily stalking the cricket, unaware that he is himself being stalked by the Golden Oriole. The deep blue of the saya is continued in the Japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and the Oriole appears again on the kashira. The 14" tsuka of the katana gives a superb balance to the katana, allowing it to move quickly and freely. Included is a protective cloth bag and maintenance kit. This is a sharpened battle ready samurai sword.

The Golden Oriole Japanese swords have a sharpened hand tempered steel blade. Genuine rayskin handle with blue Japanese cotton cord wrap.

The Golden Oriole features a cast metal tsuba has an antique copper finish with brass and gold highlights depicting a mantis stalking a cricket, and he is unaware that he himself is being stalked by the Golden Oriole.

The deeply lacquered blue of the saya is repeated in the Japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and the Oriole appears again on the kashira. The 14" tsuka of the katana gives a superb balance to the sword, allowing it to move very quickly and very freely.

This is a premium Paul Chen Sword!

This sword met my expectaions, which were high given it's price. Very nicely done blade with real hamon and very good sharpness. The overall look is a very beautiful katana.

I have lusted over this katana for months and finally decided to take the plunge and am glad I did. This is simply a stunning katana. The blue saya and ito make it very special to me and are what drew me to the sword. Other than that, the blade and fittings look great. It is my pride and joy!
