Hanwei Kouga Ninja-To

My Hanwei Kouga Ninja-to was that latest sword I had acquired. When it comes to the Ninja Sword that is ingrained into the minds of everyone, this one fits the bill perfectly. The overall length is 34 3/8 inches and the blade is 22 3/4 inches making this the shortest bladed Ninja sword I have and it has a full tsuka. It is lite and it is FAST!!!

Size comparison to the Oniyuri

It is double pegged thtough the full tang and differentially quenched to an edge hardness of 60HRc (1566 high carbon and magnesium spring steel). The wrapping looks beautiful and the tsuba is exactly the size you would look for when looking for the Ninja style, as in the 80’s movies we all know and love. If you want to know what I think about the stupid “straight versus curved blade” see HERE. Those offended by those of us who like them both are just dramatic little children with nothing better to do than whine and complain.

 This one is available right now at Kult of Athena and if it is one you want then buy it now because they sell fast and then it takes a long time for them to come back in stock. I’ve waited close to a year and half to finally get this because it has been sold out everywhere!!!
