Product Description

Setsuhen Wakizashi v2

Setsuhen (Snowflake) – Because no two snowflakes have ever been found to be alike, they represent individuality, and their perfect geometric forms represent perfection. The snowflake is a very simple example of self-assembly. There is no blueprint or genetic code that guides the growth of a snowflake, yet marvelously complex structures appear, quite literally out of thin air. And this is what you can see on the Setsuhen Wakizashi.

The Setsuhen Wakizashi is a perfect partner for our Setsuhen Katana making them a daisho (paired set).

The video below shows the difference in flexibility between the 1st Generation and 2nd Generation. The 2nd Gen is more flexible like a 1060 blade.

More subtle wire brushed hamon which looks like a real hamon.

    This is my second purchase from Geisha’s Blade and just like the first one (a nagamaki) the craftmanship on this wakizashi is superb.
    Excellent fit and finish and really sharp!
    Kudos too to Geisha’s Blade for being responsive and helpful to their customers.
    This certainly won’t be my last purchase!
