  • The elegantly simple lines of the Paul Chen / Hanwei Golden Oriole Wakizashi have long been favored by japanese admirers


    The story told by the dazzling tsuba is of a praying mantis sneaking around a cricket, not knowing that he himself is being

    chased by a golden porridge.

    The blade is hand forged in high carbon steel and is differentially hardened to display a distinct hamon.

    The deeply laqueted blue of the saya is repeated in japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and a cricket motif appears

    again in kashira.

    Each Wakizashi comes with a custom fabric bag for proper protection and a Japanese blade maintenance kit.

    The corresponding Golden Oriole Katana (Product No. SH1018) is also available to complete your collection.

    Made by Hanwei.
