Lion Dog Katana
Bamboo Mat Katana
Lion Dog Katana features an O-Kissaki blade of Hanwei's own high-alloy
HWS-1S steel, which combines superior performance with an outstanding O-choji
hamon. This steel is made in Hanwei's new factory, with high-tech
equipment, producing a very pure advanced-metallurgy blade with the best
edge-holding capability and resilience of any blade ever produced by
Hanwei. The outstanding performance characteristics of blades forged
from HWS-1S steel derive from a combination of the careful selection of
alloying elements and a complex processing procedure, basically
involving the manipulation of the steelís carbon content across the
blade section. This results in a very tough and resilient blade with a
hard, highly abrasion-resistant edge.
The sharply detailed fittings feature a Lion-dog themed black iron
tsuba, with matching fuchi/kashira and golden peony menuki. The complex
saya features a gloss-lacquered ribbed section at the koiguchi/kurikata
with the balance spatter-lacquered for a very attractive appearance. The
premium multi-colored sageo is hand-woven in pure silk.
Bamboo Mat Katana features a chu-kissaki blade of Hanwei's own
high-alloy HWS-2S steel, which combines impressive performance with a
striking O-choji hamon. This steel is made in Hanwei's new factory, with
high-tech equipment, producing a very pure, advanced-metallurgy blade
with excellent edge-holding capability and resilience.
The fittings feature a bamboo-themed black iron tsuba, textured in a
bamboo mat design with a jointed bamboo rim and highlighted with
gold-tipped bamboo leaves. The fuchi/kashira follow the same theme and
the golden menuki feature a pair of sparrows. The saya is finished in
high-gloss lacquer with horn fittings.
