The elegantly simple lines of the Hanwei Golden Oriole Katana SH1018 have long been favored by admirers of the Japanese sword.
The story told by the stunning tsuba is of a mantis stealthily stalking the cricket, unaware that he is himself being stalked by the Golden Oriole.
The deeply lacquered blue of the saya is repeated in the Japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and the Oriole appears again on the kashira.
Unmistakably Hanwei quality, the 14" tsuka of the katana gives a superb balance to the sword, allowing it to move very quickly and very freely.
Katana is supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
