Ships separately, no express shipping available on this item. Cannot ship outside the US.


Invoking the ancient guardians known as lion dogs, the Lion Dog Wakizashi features them prominently on the black iron tsuba. This short sword also has a matching fuchi/kashira and golden peony menuki. To make sure the blade is as tough as these legendary creatures, the sword has a blade of Hanwei’s very own HWS-1S steel making an extremely reliable blade with edge-holding capability. The saya features a gloss-lacquered ribbed section at the koiguchi (mouth) and kurikata (knob). Included is a multi-colored sageo of hand-woven pure silk.
