Description
CISH2432: Tactical Wakizashi
CAS Hanwei
 
The "Sidearm of the Samurai" gets a serious update in our Tactical Wak, designed for strenuous outdoor use and protection. Based on the blade geometry and superb cutting ability of the Paul Chen Raptor series wakizashi but with full tang construction for ultimate strength, the Tactical Wak is equal to any required task and then some. The 5160 high-carbon spring steel blade is plasma coated for corrosion protection and the checkered Kraton handle provides a sure foul-weather grip. The fiberglass scabbard construction avoids water absorption and reduces carrying weight, while several lanyard holes and the included ParaCord provide carrying and backpack attachment options.

Made by Hanwei.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Usable
Cons: Materials, None
This sword is awesome, very sharp and beautifully shaped. Most complain about the handle but honestly, it's so grippy you'll never wanna let go of it. I am a little bummed about the sheath, it's awesome and fits the sword great but it continually leaves black specks on my blade. Between the blade and handle, there is a piece of metal that is just horrible. In the picture it looks immaculate and very bright. Mine came with black marks all over it and it doesn't shine at all. It actually looked pretty beat up.

Nice deal
Very nice value for the price. Quick shipping and excellent packing. Only complaint would be regarding the saya, which is a little loose for the wakizashi. Other than that, would highly recommend for anyone seeking a quality tactical wakizashi for a reasonable price.

What a great sword for the money!
This my first real sword, and after seeing what else is out there in this price range, I don't see how you could do much better. This is truly a work of art and a real using blade all at the same time. The craftsmanship is superb, the edge is very good for a working blade, and after I learn how to - I am going to hone this to be like a scalpel. I would also caution anyone who is looking to get into this, to get yourself a good bokken (my next purchase from here is the one made by Cold Steel) and learn your swordcraft with it first. This thing is deadly if your not careful with it. As an example, I was in front of the bathroom mirror want to see how I looked holding, and I just gently tipped the blade down and chipped a hunk right out of the porcelain! And it DID NOT damage the edge in any way! I can just imagine what it will do to some tatami mats or bamboo once I get my hands on some. For now it's only brought out for show - I can't wait to get my bokken nowl! The only downside is the sheath. While it is well made, it fits very loose - so I will be upgrading to something better in the future.
