Description

The L6 Bainite Hunter Katana and Wakizashi by Hanwei is built on the Hanwei L6/Bainite blade in the Shinogi Zukuri style, and featuring stunning koshirae, the Hunter Katana and Wakizashi are highly desirable and functional swords. The blade features a straight style hamon with a beefy L6 blade. The subdued green silk ito and green striped lacquered saya compliment the blackened tsuba with golden accents, featuring a raptor stalking his next prey.

More about L6 Bainite:

Bainite is a structure of high-carbon steel that combines great strength with excellent flexibility and shock absorption characteristics. It has been known as an exemplary Katana blade component for a number of years but its use has been restricted to a few top-class master smiths, due to the difficulties involved in performing the exacting heat treatment procedures necessary for the production of a Bainite blade body in combination with the very hard Martensite Yakiba (edge section) required for Katana blades. Hanwei has now mastered this difficult process, using billets of L-6 tool steel (a very tough high-carbon low-alloy steel) as a starting point. Blades are forged and shaped in the normal way, then carefully heat treated to achieve the required Bainite and Martensite structures before final polishing.

Save $150 when you buy the set. 

The set comes with a premium sword stand from Dragon King. This stand looks great with all Dragon King and Paul Chen Hanwei daishu (sword pair) of katana/wakizashi. Each support rail is lined for the protection of the saya finish. This Double Sword Stand is black lacquered for universal decor versatility.
