TEA CULTURE KATANANobleWares Image of SH2331 Tea Culture Katana by Cas Hanwei (SH2331) CAS HANWEI
In Japan the traditional method of serving tea is a celebrated art form in itself. This highly ritualized ceremony is an involved process, the most elaborate of which can last hours and is reserved for the most distinguished of guests. The Tea Culture Daisho (SH2331 Katana, SH2332 Wakizashi) captures the essence of this important tradition. The Katana is built upon a traditional Shinogi Zukuri style blade with Bo-Hi. The high-carbon blade is hand forged and differentially hardened using the traditional clay method. The Koshirae (furniture) feature the typical elements present in a Japanese tea ceremony. The handle is wrapped with suede leather in a Katati Make (battle wrap) style. Includes a black lacquered saya (scabbard) and cloth sword bag.

The Daisho (大小?), literally "long short", is a Japanese term referring to the traditional pair of edged weapons of the samurai. See Models SH2332 for the Wakizashi details to complete your Tea Culture set.
