Features Premium Fittings and Materials - Includes high quality sword bag!
Cold Steel has used only traditional materials for the Emperor wakizashi Japanese sword's fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted from black iron.
The Habaki (blade collar), is hand made out of polished brass and the hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black cord. A beautiful brass Menuki (a small, ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as possible.
This exquisite sword features a fully sharpened 1060 carbon steel blade, heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface has been given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove).
This battle-ready wakizashi is an exquisite example of the swordmaker's art. This is a sharpened battle ready sword
