The Midnight Forge Boshin Wakizashi is part of a Honshu special edition series that takes the popular sword to a new level of modern and sleek design with tactical engineering and perfect blade-to-hilt balancing. The wakizashi has a 22 1/2”, black 1060 high carbon steel blade, making it unrivaled in sharpness and strength. Trading traditional trappings for sleek contemporary style, the cutting edge Boshin is an undeniably modern weapon. Textured TPR shrouds the handle for an ergonomic no-slip grip and the handle is crowned with an oversized grey tini-finished steel pommel. The guard snubs fanciful ornamentation in favor of a practical pointed ellipse design. In keeping with the Boshin wakizashi’s clean, functional motif, the scabbard is wooden with a semi-gloss black finish and features black faux leather wrapping and cotton cord. Wielding the Honshu Boshin Midnight Forge Wakizashi is almost Zen-like - you just have to experience it for yourself!
