This is the companion sword for our Kaze katana. Material and design made to be a matching set with our black ito version of the Kaze Katana... Sharpened functional cutter. It features a 6.5" tsuka and uses double mekugi.

Key feature of this particular wakizashi is the differentially clay hardened blade with the visible natural hamon as is on our Kaze Katana. As is with our latest version of the Kaze, this sword uses a double mekugi with one being bamboo, and the other being copper.

New tsuka core with a slightly shallower same channel for improved durability. New synthetic sageo much more durable and substantial than the old cotton ito.

For detailed description of the blade and the steel, please refer to our Kaze katana.
