Product Description

The Lion Dog Wakizashi 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. Magnificent sword 5 Star Review

    Like the matching Katana, this Lion Dog Wakizashi is simply, quietly magnificent. No flaws, very tight, nice balance.

  2. Lion Dog Wakizashi 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2015

    I was pleasantly surprised with the sugata on the blade I received and the tsuka shape, both very well shaped. Not typical shape of what I've gotten in years past. Hanwei is going a good direction if the rest of their blades follow suit with the one I received. Hanwei fittings are always pretty nice, same case with this model. Gave it a 5.
