  • 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.
