Although initially crafted for wars, the samurai sword is today associated with life other than being a tool of war as it provides valid knowledge about the samurai, thus has become a key to open up one's mind to samurai's lifestyle such as focus, discipline and illumination, carrying the spirit of the samurai with it. With few exceptions, the samurai sword has kindled the imagination of all who sets eyes on them, most especially the wakizashi which is famed as a companion since it was always worn by the samurai.
The Akiko wakizachi is sword built per excellence, it is handcrafted so as to ensure a perfect finish and excellent blade. Its blade is finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening. At a length of 50cm (19.7 inch.), the steel blade is made from pure 1060 carbon steel leaving it with no equal comparison. The sword which is held with a silk handle of about 21cm ( 8.27 inch.) is crafted to offer a comfortable, firm and confident grip.
We may not be samurais but their culture is worth emulating and their art worth practising.
Blade: The blade of this sword is hand forged and finished with 12 stages of polishing and sharpening. The steel used is high quality carbon steel, which is very pure, keeps its edge very well and is incomparable. The blade is sharpened, if unsharpened is required please get in contact.
