- Hand honed and clay tempered
- Black lacquered wood scabbard
- Damascus steel
This unusual blade is almost an exact reproduction of an extremely rare antique original from the collection of Mr. Steven Seagal.
Its wide, curved and wickedly keen 15” Naginata-style blade is made from Damascus steel - Hamaguri ground and highly polished with a clay tempered Hamon and pronounced “false edge” – with a very distinctive weight forward balance giving it amazing cutting potential! The Tsuba, Fuchi and Kashira all feature a distinctive Vajra motif – symbolizing diamond like strength, the force of a thunderbolt, and spiritual enlightenment.
This Wakizashi also features a handle that’s tightly wrapped in black leather (rather than the more traditional samé and silk) adding to its truly unique appearance.
