Quick Overview

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 flow 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.
