Golden Oriole Katana

Golden Oriole Katana

$1,200.00 $1,250.00

It has been said that in simplicity lies great beauty, an axiom stunningly validated by the Golden Oriole Katana (SH1018) and Wakizashi (SH1019). The story told by the stunning tsuba is of a mantis stealthily stalking the cricket, unaware that he is himself being stalked by the Golden Oriole. The deeply lacquered blue of the saya is repeated in the Japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and the Oriole appears again on the kashira. Unmistakably Hanwei quality, the 14" tsuka of the katana gives a superb balance to the sword, allowing it to move very quickly and very freely. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
