Praying Mantis Katana

The Praying Mantis is a symbol of cunning and power in Japanese culture and is
consequently a highly respected theme in Samurai swords.

Built on the new Hanwei L6/Bainite blade in the Shobu Zukuri style with Bo-Hi, and featuring superb
koshirae, the Praying Mantis Katana is a very desirable and functional piece.

The subdued green silk ito and deep brown of the lacquered saya provide handsome contrast to
the dark copper and golden accents of the tsuba, fuchi and kashira.

The stalking mantis lies in wait for his next prey, mirroring the power
and grace in this exceptional Katana.

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.
