Description

Of the legends of feudal Japan, the name Oda Nobunaga needs little introduction. Newly designed by Hanwei we commemorate this powerful 16th century daimyo in steel instead of words. The 27″ forged steel blade features a prominent hamon as well as hi to make the sword quick and light at 2 lbs 6 oz. A beautiful curved symmetry flows from the 1″ kissaki to the kashira.

The tsuba is a classic Hanwei design of Oda Nobunaga which is often imitated but never truly replicated. The front of the tsuba bears his likeness and mon whereas the blade side depicts two soldiers with yari subduing an enemy. The fuchi is embossed with a gold flintlock and powder bag which pays homage to Oda’s fondness of tanegashima firearms. Embossed in silver and gold is a finely detailed rendering of Oda’s kabuto (helmet). The 11 1/2″ tsuka is wrapped in green Japanese cotton over black dyed same (ray skin) which is contrasted by the Nobunaga mon in silver and gold as well.

The deep green lacquered saya ties the whole piece together with the black cotton sageo and buffalo horn kurikata and kojiri. Certainly the crown jewel in the new Generals Series by Hanwei, this katana will be a must in any Japanese motif on a display stand and the match Oda Nobunaga Kabuto (AH2083).

    Best purchase I’ve made this year! I was on the fence about spending this much on a sword but it doesn’t not disappoint! These pictures do not do it justice. The detailing is immaculate. The deep green saya is flawless and the blade is incredibly sharp! For my first high end sword purchase I think I made the best choice out there. This katana is everything I hoped it would be.
