Hanwei – Golden Oriole Series – Wakizashi


  • During the Muromachi period (1568-1603), the introduction of the pairing of the Katana (the curved sword) and Wakizashi was introduced.
  • The Wakizashi, or the shorter companion blade to the Katana, was about 18 inches long.
  • Only the warrior class – the Samurai – was allowed to wear the two swords, which remained a custom for the next several hundred years until abolished in the 19th century.
