Oni Katana

The Oni are mythical creatures from Japanese folklore similar to western demons or trolls. In modern culture, they are
beginning to move away from this menacing connotation into the role of guardian or protector, similar in character to gargoyles.
Their power and ferocity, however, have not diminished.
The Japanese saying that translates to Oni with an iron club or to be of an invincible nature fits Hanwei's Oni
Katana's L6/Bainite blade perfectly. The blade's geometry allows for outstanding cutting abilities. The sword's Tsuka is wrapped
in black ray skin and silk, while the Koshirae feature Oni motifs in various classical styles. The result is a unique combination
of folklore and functionality.

Bainite is a structure of high-carbon steel that combines great strength with excellent flexibility and shock absorption
characteristics. It has been known as an exemplary Katana blade component for a number of years, but its use has been restricted
to a few top-class master smiths due to the difficulties involved in performing the exacting heat-treatment procedures necessary
for the production of a Bainite blade body in combination with the very hard Martensite Yakiba (edge section) required for Katana
blades.

Hanwei has now mastered this difficult process, using billets of L-6 tool steel (a very tough high-carbon low-alloy steel) as a
starting point for this katana. Blades are forged and shaped in the normal way, then carefully heat-treated to achieve the
required Bainite and Martensite structures before final polishing.

Made by Hanwei.
