Paul Chen Great Wave Tanto

The furniture of each piece in the Great Wave Set (SH5004, SH5002, SH5022) displays the renowned Tomoe motif used frequenly for family crests and shrine decoration. The tsuba, fuchi, & kashira are made of blackened iron and feature the Tomoe crest (mon). The blades are hand-forged from T10 high-carbon steel and are differentially hardened using traditional claying methods. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent. Each piece has a deeply lacquered black saya with a one-piece brass habaki construction. Real ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka, and the tsuka-ito and sageo are made of premium woven Japanese black cotton. The katana and wakizashi are constructed with a long (o) kissaki and are well suited for cutting exercises (tameshigiri). The handle on the tanto is an attractive ribbed buffalo horn.
