The Praying Mantis is a symbol of cunning and power in Japanese culture and is consequently a highly respected theme in Samurai swords. Built on the new L6/Bainite blade (detailed below) in the Shobu Zukuri style with Bo-Hi, and featuring superb koshirae, the Hanwei Praying Mantis katana is a very desirable and functional piece. The subdued green silk ito and deep brown of the lacquered saya provide handsome contrast to the dark copper and golden accents of the tsuba, fuchi and kashira. The stalking mantis lies in wait for his next prey, mirroring the power and grace in this exceptional katana.

Bainite is high carbon steel that has been heat treated and rapidly cooled to form the steel into a strong micro-crystalline structure. The edge of the blade has been further hardened to produce a martensite steel structure. This combination imparts great strength whilst the blade retains flexibility and shock absorption.
