CAS Hanwei Hanwei - Tiger Series - Wakizashi
Each piece in the Tiger Series (SH1204, SH1205, SH1206) has a hand forged & folded K120C powder steel blade, differentially tempered using a traditional claying method to produce an HRC60 edge, HRC40 back. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent and the grain pattern (hada) shows distinct layers. The saya are deeply lacquered in black, with inlaid brass bamboo leaves. The ray skin (same) used on the tsuka, is of the highest quality and the tsuka-ito and sageo on all three pieces are woven from the best quality Japanese cotton. The fittings (koshirae) are all made from blackened bronzed iron, selectively detailed in gold. The tsuba of the Katana and wakizashi are made from blackened iron, with a "stalking tiger" inlaid in brass. The blade collar (habaki) is a one piece brass construction. The blades of all three pieces are grooved (bo-hi) on both sides, with a short (sho) kissaki on the katana and wakizashi.
