It is said that a koi swims up rivers and climbs waterfalls with bravery, not unlike a Samurai warrior. It is also said that if a koi is caught, it will lie still beneath the knife, facing its death bravely like a Samurai facing a sword. Hanwei's Koi Wakizashi by Paul Chen has a hand-forged T10 high carbon steel blade which was differentially hardened using a traditional claying method. More information...
