Forge Folded Steel Blade

The return of a classic...our Tiger Katana from Hanwei is nostalgic reissue of the original folded steel katana made in the early 2000s. The specifications are painstakingly reproduced for accurancy. The 29 3/4" K120C powder steel blade is differentially tempered with a traditional claying method to the grain patter (hada) showing distinct layers. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent. the blade features groove (bo-hi) on both sides. The tsuba is made from blackened iron depicting a "stalking tiger" inlaid in brass. The ray skin (same) is covered on the handle (tsuka) with Japanese Cotton. The saya is deeply lacquered in black and inlaid with brass bamboo leaves.

The Tiger Katana is a great companion piece to the Tiger Wakizashi, and the Tiger Tanto that are made in the same tradition and high quality materials, yet can stand alone in superior functionality and grace.

"It is beautiful"

D - Verified Buyer

"the saya was too loose,and mildew on the habaki, otherwise perfect"

Response: I am happy you like the piece. There are shims in the kit that comes with the katana so you can adjust the fit for your needs. The green you see on the brass habaki is the packing oil. It can be easily removed with a cloth.

S - Verified Buyer

"Beautiful sword except for blade-long scratches on both sides. Hopefully, further polishings will erase."

Response: Sometimes the packing oil drys and can look like scratches. A couple polishes will clean that up.
