Product Description

The Bamboo Mat Katana by Paul Chen has quickly become one of our most popular samurai swords here at Swords Of The East. Like the name suggests it is an excellent bamboo cutting sword for martial arts professionals. It also has an
incredibly high quality blade for the price. The traditional look and feel of the sword are also great selling points. You won't need to sharpen this sword as the edge is so durable. 

Our Bamboo Mat Katana features a chu-kissaki blade of Hanwei's own high-alloy HWS-2S steel, which combines impressive performance with a striking O-choji hamon. This steel is made in Hanwei's new factory, with high-tech equipment, producing a very pure, advanced-metallurgy blade with excellent edge-holding capability and resilience. The fittings feature a bamboo-themed black iron tsuba, textured in a bamboo mat design with a jointed bamboo rim and highlighted with gold-tipped bamboo leaves. The fuchi/kashira follow the same theme and the golden menuki feature a pair of sparrows. The saya is finished in high-gloss lacquer with horn fittings. This is the newest performance katana by Paul Chen Cas Hanwei. This is a new extremely strong steel that Paul Chen has developed himself. This allows for a very strong blade that will hold an edge and produces an extremely high quality cutting sword. Made by Hanwei.
