The Shinto Wakizashi has a hand-forged T10 high-carbon steel blade with Bo-Hi. The blade is differentially hardened using the traditional claying method. The Wakizashi is mounted in black and the tsuka-ito is made of premium black Japanese cotton. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black cotton sageo. A finely rendered dragon, detailed in gold, with true front-and-back detail, forms the black iron tsuba. The fittings are superbly antiqued adding to the aesthetics of the piece. The Shinto Wakizashi is supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit. This Shinto Wakizashi is the companion piece to the Shinto Katana (SH1001), with matching fittings and blade construction.
