The Great Wave Katana made by Paul Chen for Hanwei displays the Tomoe motif used frequenly for family crests and shrine decoration. The koshirae are crafted in blackened iron and feature the Tomoe mon in a quality brass finish. The full tang blade is hand-forged from T10 high-carbon steel featuring a long (o)kissaki and is differentially hardened to produce a distinctive hamon. The saya is deeply lacquered in black with the Koiguchi, Kurikata and Kojiri crafted in buffalo horn to aid in longevity and authenticity.  The rayskin of the tsuka has a premium and tightly woven Japanese black cotton wrap with a matching sageo.
