This wakizashi is an amazing addition to the Thaitsuki Nihonto samurai swords line. It is a hand made fully functional battle ready work of art produced in limited quantity.
This is the first release of the wakizashi to match the Katana pair.
Finally a new limited edition Thaitsuki sword is in. After the popularity of the limited edition ivory katana, thaitsuki has released a new one. This katana is sure to be a popular edition to many including the die hard Thaitsuki fans out there. These samurai swords are made with quality and care, and it shows in each sword. I always get excited when there is a new limited edition from Thaitsuki. They are highly collectible, and completely handmade which makes them even more desirable. The Tonbo Sanmai is no different. Look at the details on the fittings and the quality of steel is second to none.
The Tonbo wakizashi Japanese sword is specially handmade and forged in the Yamato Nihonto tradition, which is considered to be the oldest tradition in Japanese swordmaking. Hand forged, polished and sharpened, This forging method and with the use of premium quality, high carbon Japanese steel makes it an extremely sharp with sanmai traditional structure.
This is a high end wakizashi that will appeal to the discriminating collector or serious practitioner. It can stand alone or pair with the full length katana.
The tonbo wakizashi features a genuine same’ Japanese black silk Tsuka Ito and hand made silver Koshirae. The Tonbo tsuka Japanese wak can be completely disassembled for full maintenance. It is a fully functional Japanese wakizashi, not a replica(notice from real hada and real hamon which occurred from quenched technic and sanmai structure)
Featuring a hand forged and folded Sanmai high carbon steel blade with 1024 layers, this is among the upper echelon of wakizashi for the sword collector, silver fittings with a dragonfly decorative as well as black silk over black rayskin wrapped tsuka round out this stunning wakizashi.
