This Pre-Owned Hanwei Bamboo Mat Wakizashi has a blade in very good condition. The hamon is still bright and vibrant. The blade has some long, light scratches on a single side which follow the edge. The entirety of the hilt is in good condition. The grip wrap is faded in some areas, but is still tight and seems to have been reinforced with a lacquer to harden it. The scabbard is in good functional condition. It is missing its sageo cord and has numerous scuffs, scratches, chips and other blemishes on the lacquer finish.

The Hanwei Bamboo Mat Wakizashi features a chu-kissaki blade of Hanwei's own high-alloy HWS-2S steel, which combines impressive performance with a striking O-choji hamon. This steel is made in Hanwei's new factory, with high-tech equipment, producing a very pure, advanced-metallurgy blade with excellent edge-holding capability and resilience. The fittings feature a bamboo-themed black iron tsuba, textured in a bamboo mat design with a jointed bamboo rim and highlighted with gold-tipped bamboo leaves. The fuchi/kashira follow the same theme and the golden menuki feature a pair of sparrows. The saya is finished in high-gloss lacquer with horn fittings.
