The Crane is a symbol of luck and longevity, loyalty and strength, and is a much-loved symbol in Japan. As Cold Steel developed this Wakizashi to add to their world-renowned collection of Japanese blades, they felt it only fitting to add the crane as a motif. The Mizutori Wakizashi features a high-end, high-performance blade that was inspired by traditional, practical battlefield wakizashis.
The Mizutori's blade is made from high quality 1095 carbon steel and deferentially hardened with a clay tempered Hamon. The handsome blade features a hand sharpened Hamaguri grind with highly polished spine and blade flats. The Tsuba and Menuki both feature an iconic crane motif, and the high quality ray-skin handle is tightly wrapped in brown braid cord, adding a level of detail and beauty that must be seen to be believed.
Housed inside a lustrous black lacquered Saya, the Mizutori Katana a stunning and attractive sword that is sure to become the pride of your collection!
