Product Description


This new cutting katana from CAS/Hanwei is designed specifically for the martial artist that needs a sword for the demands of rigorous tameshigiri. The Wind & Thunder Katana (SH5001), Wakisashi (SH5024) and Tanto (SH5003) all have a hand-forged 1065 high carbon steel blade that is differentially tempered using the traditional claying method. The blades feature a long o-kissaki & a heavier and thicker blade with traditional furniture and fittings.

The Wind & Thunder is fitted with the black iron Raiden tsuba and Tomoe motif fuchi and kashira. The handle is wrapped in genuine ray skin (same) and the tsuka-ito is premium Japanese black cotton. The saya is done in a traditional black laquer and the sageo is also black cotton. This sword is an excellent choice for those intereseted in Battojutsu
