Our Paper Crane Katana, is without doubt the greatest achievement in sword making artistry yet available from Hanwei. The blade is crafted from HanweiÃ¢??s own Tamahagane steel while the fittings reflect the atmosphere of the Japanese theater. The DaishoÃ¢??s name stems from the origami (the art of paper folding) cranes that decorate the striking Tsuba and Fuchi/Kashira, all of which feature highly-prized Ã¢??NanakoÃ¢?Âx9D or stippled backgrounds. The Menuki feature thespian masks, a symbol shared by the Japanese theater and its western counterpart. The Saya of the katana houses a Kozuka (small knife) The Kozuka and Kogai are decorated with musical instruments of the theater. The Paper Crane theme is carried to the outstanding hand woven silk Sageo, the result of many hours of skilled work on a hand loom.
