The blade of the Kaeru katana is hand-forged and folded from powder steel, with a medium-length (chu) kissaki. The saya is
deeply lacquered in black. High quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka. The tsuka-ito is made of premium dark blue
Japanese cotton. The tsuba is crafted in blacken iron, with detailing in gold and silver and a frog on lily pad scene
decoration. The silk sageo compliments the theme of the Frog and is elegently woven in dark blue and moss green. The fuchi
and kashira are of black with brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The
habaki is a one-piece brass construction.
Review by Marc Kaden Ridgeway;
To be honest, I think that this is the most beautiful sword that Hanwei has ever turned out. I absolutely love the
theme, the koshirae, the flow ... and all the little detailed touches. The hada is the best I've seen on a Hanwei, and that
means on ANY production katana. - Marc Kaden Ridgeway
