The Wind and Thunder Wakizashi works great for tameshigiri, the Japanese art of target test cutting that began in the Edo period. It has a thick, heavy blade and includes a gorgeous wind and thunder design. This sword features a Raiden tsuba, crafted in black iron, with fuchi and kashira that feature a Tomoe motif. The tsuka is wrapped in genuine same (rayskin) and the tsuka-ito is premium Japanese black cotton. The saya is finished in a traditional black lacquer with a black cotton sageo.
