This masterful piece by Hanwei combines the elements of one of the most popular Chinese classic novels with an elegantly crafted and superbly decorated Tachi. Shui Hu Chuan (Water Margin Chronicles), translated by Pearl S. Buck as "All Men are Brothers", is a truly epic tale of a band of outlaws who, in Robin Hood fashion, attempt to overthrow a corrupt government in the name of the Emperor.

Our Tachi sword  tells the story in a series of exquisitely-detailed bas-relief panels on the sides of the tsuka ans saya, held inplace by retainers that are themselves decorated in a chrysanthemum motif.The blade of the Tachi is no less outstanding - forged and folded in Swedish powder steel, with a hamon displaying elements of both notare and gunome, Paul Chen hastruley created a  a work of art.
