CAS Hanwei SH1018 Golden Oriole Katana Forged steel 28.5" blade
It has been said that in simplicity lies great beauty, an axiom stunningly validated by the Golden Oriole Katana (1018-GT). The story told by the stunning tsuba is of a mantis stealthily stalking the cricket, unaware that he is himself being stalked by the Golden Oriole. The deeply lacquered blue of the saya is repeated in the Japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and the Oriole appears again on the kashira. Unmistakably Hanwei quality, the 14" tsuka of the katana gives a superb balance to the sword, allowing it to move very quickly and very freely. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
