Product Description

We just reduced this amazing Hanwei Bushido Katana sh1210. This is one of the finest samurai swords that Paul Chen makes! This is a really amazing samurai sword from Paul Chen. It is extremely high quality steel and durable construction that can withstand heavy use. These samurai swords feature K120C powder steel which is extremely high grade.

Each piece in the Bushido Series has a hand-forged & folded K120C powder steel blade, differentially tempered using a traditional claying method to produce an HRC60 edge, HRC40 back. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent and the grain pattern (hada) shows distinct layers.

The saya are deeply lacquered in gold with inlaid brass cherry blossom (sakura) flowers. High quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka of the katana and wakizashi, while the tsuka of the tanto is a gold-plated brass with a battle-scene decoration in relief.

The tsuba of the katana and wakizashi is of blackened and bronzed iron, with detailing in gold and silver and a battle scene decoration. The tsuka-ito on the katana and wakizashi and the sageo on all three pieces are woven from premium Japanese cotton. The fuchi and kashira are of blackened bronze with brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The blade collar (habaki) is a one-piece brass construction. The katana and wakizashi blades are un-grooved, while the tanto blade is grooved (bo-hi) on both sides. The katana and wakizashi have medium-length (chu) kissaki.

I purchased the Bushido about 5 years ago. It is one of my favorite swords. It has beautiful furniture. The Tsuka wrapping is very tight and the Same is of a high quality. The scabbard is excellent in gloss brown with brass flowers. But the folded blade is truly a work of art. I have certain blades that I use for cutting but not the ones I treasure. So I can not comment on it's cutting ability. I also own the Kami and the Tori XL Light Katana which are also beautiful but I like the Bushido better. I hope this has been helpful.
