Tea Culture Katana Hanwei SH2331
In Japan the traditional method of serving tea is a celebrated art form in itself. This highly ritualized ceremony is an involved process, the most elaborate of which can last hours and is reserved for the most distinguished of guests.
Our Tea Culture Daisho (SH2331, SH2332) captures the essence of this important tradition. The Katana is built upon a traditional Shinogi Zukuri style blade with Bo-Hi.
The high-carbon blade is hand forged and differentially hardened using the traditional clay method.
The Koshirae (furniture) feature the typical elements present in a Japanese tea ceremony.
The handle is wrapped with suede leather in a Katati Make (battle wrap) style.
