Product Description

 The Lion Dog Katana features an O-Kissaki blade of Hanwei's own high-alloy HWS-1S steel, which combines superior performance with an outstanding O-choji hamon. This steel is made in Hanwei's new factory, with high-tech equipment, producing a very pure advanced-metallurgy blade with the best edge-holding capability and resilience of any blade ever produced by Hanwei. The outstanding performance characteristics of blades forged from HWS-1S steel derive from a combination of the careful selection of alloying elements and a complex processing procedure, basically involving the manipulation of the steels carbon content across the blade section. This results in a very tough and resilient blade with a hard, highly abrasion-resistant edge.

The sharply detailed fittings feature a Lion-dog themed black iron tsuba, with matching fuchi/kashira and golden peony menuki. The complex saya features a gloss-lacquered ribbed section at the koiguchi/kurikata with the balance spatter-lacquered for a very attractive appearance. The premium multi-colored sageo is hand-woven in pure silk.

  1. Very Impressive Lion Dog Katana 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Dec 2015

    Let me first say that I have no kendo training, but trained in two Asian martial arts years ago and am a prior Army Sergeant and now a 60 year old retired Naval Aviator.
    This sword is magnificent. I see no flaws. Everything is tight. It is a bit heavier than expected. I will probably buy the matching Wakizashi.

  2. Look and feel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2014

    Nice. Bigger than I expected, have not spent much time with it yet. Saya needs to be tightened.
