  • Model: HW0101084

In an attempt to end a thousand year tradition . the Samurai were banned for carrying their swords in 1876. The proud warrior class did not support this decision. Thus . the "stick katana" came into being. The blade of the sword was hidden in an unsuspicious walking cane and continued the existence of the katana. This Bamboo Stick Katana features a hand-forged blade (nagasa) out of 1065 high-carbon steel that is hardened using a traditional claying method . different from other methods. The hardness of the edge and resilient blade body are a result of this technique and a proud secret of the Samurai sword. The blade is finished off with a skillfully carved bamboo handle and scabbard. Made by Hanwei.

The Hobby Stone arrived perfectly yesterday and I've already got my castle mold created and can't wait to detail it. The cast feels very strong and it's bubble free.
