During the Muromachi period (1568-1603), the introduction of the pairing of the Katana (the curved sword) and Wakizashi was introduced. The Wakizashi, or the shorter companion blade to the Katana, was about 18 inches long. Only the warrior class - the Samurai - was allowed to wear the two swords, which remained a custom for the next several hundred years until abolished in the 19th century. This Wakizashi is the companion piece to the Golden Oriole Katana, with matching fittings and blade construction. The blade from the Hanwei factory is hand-forged in high-carbon steel and is differentially hardened to display a distinct hamon. Edge hardness is HRC60, back hardness HRC40. Supplied with protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit. Produced by Hanwei under direction of Paul Chen. This sword comes pre-sharpened for the martial artist and tameshigiri cutting.
