This unusual blade is almost an exact reproduction of an extremely rare antique original from the collection of Mr. Steven Seagal.
Its wide, curved and wickedly keen 15" Naginata-style blade is made from Damascus steel - Hamaguri ground and highly polished with a clay tempered Hamon and pronounced "false edge" - with a very distinctive weight forward balance giving it amazing cutting potential! The Tsuba, Fuchi and Kashira all feature a distinctive Vajra motif - symbolizing diamond like strength, the force of a thunderbolt, and spiritual enlightenment.
This Wakizashi also features a handle that's tightly wrapped in black leather (rather than the more traditional sam and silk) adding to its truly unique appearance.
