Product Description

The Raptor Series, A new line from Paul Chen Hanwei is a series of cutting swords which has been designed for the practitioner who does not necessarily have access to traditional cutting mats, but wishes to practice and perfect his cutting technique. The blade of the Raptor Wakizashi is hand forged in 5160 high carbon steel and is specifically heat treated to produce very high resilience and greater tolerance to misdirected cuts than a conventionally differentially tempered blade. The edge geometry is configured to facilitate the cutting of both soft and semi hard materials without chipping, allowing the user a wider range of targets.

* Hand forged 5160 carbon steel blade
* Cotton "battle wrapped" tsuka
* Raptor tsuba
* Fuchi and kashira feature the Raptor motif
* Black matte finish saya
