When worn with the longer katana, the pair, then called ‘’daisho’’ together, signified that their bearer was a samurai, for only they could carry two swords. Useful for indoor fighting or a close-quarter melee, the Wakizashi was also often used to behead defeated opponents or to commit the ritual suicide of seppuku.It was common for a samurai to leave his katana at the entrance of a home, keeping his Wakizashi at his side. Non-samurai of the ‘’Chonin’’ class could also carry Wakizashi as the Katana was strictly for samurai. Merchants, wary of bandits, might have a Wakizashi with them on their travels.

This Wakizashi, made by Dynasty Forge, features a blade crafted from 1060 high carbon spring steel mono-tempered to a Rockwell Hardness of approximately 52-53. The tsuka grip is of wood, wrapped in rayskin same. The tsuka-ito wrapping is black cotton with two dragon menuki beneath. The seppa are of copper and the habaki of brass. Bamboo Mekugi hold the blade in place, but allow for disassembly for maintenance and customization. The iron tsuba is done in the ring style reminiscent of the type favored by legendary samurai Minamoto Musashi. The saya scabbard is wood, coated with a glossy black lacquer and a matching black cotton sageo. It comes with a blue cloth sword bag.


Please Note: It is common for this item to have different menuki when restocked from manufacturer. Menuki style may not match photos as shown.
