The Hanwei Orchid is as quick as it is beautiful with a
relatively light blade of folded K120C and striking
koshirae. The hamon is prominent and the hada shows
distinct layers. High quality ray skin (same) is used on
the tsuka, and the tsuka-ito and sageo are woven from
premium Japanese cotton. The tsuba is of blackened iron,
with an Orchid and Butterfly decoration inlaid in
silver, brass and copper. The saya are deeply lacquered
in blue with buffalo horn koiguchi and kurikata. The
fuchi, kashira and kojiri are of bronzed iron with
silver and gold detailing. The habaki is of one-piece
brass construction. The golden highlighted menuki
are of grasshopper and ciccada.
