Our Modern Wakizashi represents a contemporary interpretation of what the renowned Samurai would look like in our time.  Using the best of the latest technological materials,  the low maintenance of this katana is perfect for the urban warrior of today.  The humble attributes of this katana bely its true strength and resilience. 


The differentially tempered 19 1/2” 1566  steel blade features a real hamon line with a copper habaki and seppa.  The tsuka encapsulates the tang in textured G10 and is dual pinned for a secure grip which is unremovable.  The silver menuki on the tsuka are shi shi (lion dogs) which are embedded in the handle.  The textured black saya features an olive paracord sageo around a polymer kurikata and kojiri.  The Modern Katana also has the Modern Tanto as a companion piece to complete your modern warrior collection.
