If you are an admirer of fine swords and bladed weapons of both yesterday and modern day then CAS Hanwei is going to be a favorite manufacturer of yours. Their craftsman made authentic reproductions using state of the art technologies and components to ensure you have a blade that is functional and beautiful. Take a look at CAS Hanwei and you will be adding them to your collection in short order.

In 1876, the Samurai were banned from carrying their swords. This attempt to end a thousand year tradition was not received well by the proud warrior class and the "stick katana" was born. Innocuous walking canes now concealed the revered blades, but the katana lived on. The Bamboo Stick Katana from Hanwei combines an artfully carved bamboo scabbard and handle with a blade (nagasa) that is hand-forged in 1065 high-carbon steel and is differentially hardened using a traditional claying method. The edge hardness and resilient blade body produced by this technique embody the true secret of the Samurai sword.
