Product Description

Bushido, or Way of the Warrior, defines the code of conduct an honorable Samurai must follow and our Bushido katana is designed to perpetuate this tradition. The blade of the Bushido is hand-forged and folded from K120C powder steel, with a medium-length (chu) kissaki. The saya is deeply lacquered with inlaid brass cherry blossom (sakura) flowers. High quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka. The tsuba is crafted in blackened and bronzed iron, with detailing in gold and silver and a battle scene decoration. The tsuka-ito and the sageo are woven from premium Japanese cotton. The fuchi and kashira are of blackened bronze with brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The habaki is a one-piece brass construction. See Models SH1211 and SH1212 for the Wakizashi and Tanto details.

  1. Bushido Katana review 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2016

    Overall, a very nice katana for the price range. Most glaring imperfection on mine was located at the back of the kissaki. It was rough and unpolished. Quality Control missed this one. I had even called before delivery to request that mine be inspected as it would be used for tameshigiri. Three and a half stars.


  2. Bushido Katana 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Feb 2016

    The Paul Chen Hanwei Bushido katana is one sweet sword. It looks absolutely incredible sitting in a stand on my fireplace mantel. The quality craftmanship that goes into creating it is obvious, and it is as much a magnificent piece of art, as it is a utilitarian tool, weapon etc.. Paulchenhanweiswords.com were really good in responding to all my inquiries, both before and after my purchase. Their prices are the best and their customer service is top notch.


  3. Bushido Katana Review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2012

    this is a really nice sword. The blade is beautiful. Looking at it you can see the wavy patern from the folding of the steel. the balance is awesome. I personally like the fact the handle is abit shorter than alot of these other katanas. holding it in your hands you can really tell what a truly precision weapon it is. unfortunately i am too chicken to try it out because it is such a beautiful sword i dont want to scratch or blemish the blade. so i just practice with my practical katana. If i had to choose one of my katanas to actually fight with I would use this one. One other thing i forgot to point out is although the handle is somewhat shorter than alot of the hanwei katanas it is double pegged for added strength. I would certainly recommend this sword, it is by far my favorite katana.
