Shirasaya swords are a real find because not many manufacturers make them. These are genuine Shirasaya swords from Hanwei that are fully functional and authentic. Shirasaya swords come with impressive natural wood scabbards and wood handles with hand forged and folded powder steel blades. The hardwood Shirasaya is solidly made to provide safe storage of the blade when not in use. Often referred to as a Cane Sword because this weapon was frequently chosen by Samurai because its sleek and simple appearance made it very easy to conceal.
