Hanwei Tiger Tanto - SH1206
Hanwei Tiger Tanto
Each piece in the Tiger group has a hand-forged and folded ASSAB-K120C powder steel blade, differentially tempered to produce an HRC60 edge, HRC40 back and a distinctive hamon. Saya are deeply lacquered in black, with inlaid brass bamboo leaves. The ray skin used on the tsuka is of the highest quality, and the tsuka-ito and sageo on all three pieces are woven from best quality Japanese cotton. The Fuchi, Kashira, Kojiri, Koiguchi and Kurigata are all made from blackened bronzed iron, selectively detailed in gold. The Tsuba of the Katana and Wakizashi are made from blackened iron, with a tiger inlaid in brass. The Habaki is of one-piece brass construction. The blades of all three pieces are grooved on both sides, with a short Kissaki on the Katana and Wakizashi. See Models SH1205 and SH1204 for the Wakizashi and Katana details.
