Hanwei Golden Oriole Wakizashi

During the Muromachi period (1568-1603), the introduction of the pairing of the Katana (the curved sword) and Wakizashi was introduced. The Wakizashi, or the shorter companion blade to the Katana, was about 18 inches long. Only the warrior class - the Samurai - was allowed to wear the two swords, which remained a custom for the next several hundred years until abolished in the 19th century. This Wakizashi is the companion piece to the Golden Oriole Katana (SH1018), with matching fittings and blade construction. Supplied with protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.

Hand forged high-carbon steel
Built for cutting
