Red Wood Iaito Wakizashi by John Lee

Due to permanent demand, the Red Wood Iaito wakizashi is from now available in two different lengths. The name "Red wood" is derived from the dull, brownish-red lacquered scabbard, in which the grain of the wood is still clearly visible.

The blade is made of 420 stainless steel in Shinogi zukuri style, it has a hand forged and dull blade with fuller (Bo-Hi). The handle is wrapped in black cotton in classical Hineri maki-style and is underlayed with genuine ray skin. It comes with red-brown, matt lacquered scabbard (Cha Ishimi-style) with visible wood grain.

The blade has a long tang, which is fixed in the handle by two bamboo pins (Mekugi). The sword can be thus taken completely apart. It consists of no plastic parts, only high-quality authentic materials are used.

The habaki and seppa are made of brass. Tsuba, Fuchi, Menuki, Kashira are made of metal.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blade?

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
