Brought to you by popular demand, it is finally here: a matching Wakizashi to go with the Ryujin T10 Custom Katana - solid bodied blade version so you can create your own Samurai Daisho set!
As with the Katana in the series, the Wakizashi utilizes only the BEST available options to ensure you get the best looking, best performing, best cutting sword possible - fully guaranteed to not only meet but EXCEED your expectations. With only the best options available, it is practically impossible to design a bad looking sword. Just pick the components that you like the look of best and let us make it real for you!
But don't make the mistake of thinking these swords are just pretty ornaments - these are serious, practical blades that are surprisingly robust yet traditionally constructed and at our special introductory price, are some of the best cutting swords available anywhere near this price point. The ability to customize them is indeed just a very special free bonus!!
1) Select which Tsuba you wish to be mounted. All tsuba are made from solid iron and all but the Double "C" Ring Musashi and Black Crane tsuba feature REAL gold accents to give the design a splash of color at NO additional cost to you (normally $75 more!). The 'Front' is the Omote and is the side that faces the tsuka, the 'Back' is the Ura and faces the tip of the blade. This is so that when the sword is worn or displayed, the more attractive side faces onlookers, and when drawn, the less attractive part faces the opponent..
2) Select tsuka (hande) ito color from 8 different choices of synthetic silk rayon.
3) Select saya style and color. T924322 has a wood-grain finish. T924911 is the natural wood with clear lacquer finish. T924111 is a standard glossy black, T924121 has a textured finish to minimize finger prints and scratches.

Featured positive reviews:
My wakizashi arrived very quickly, and it looks great. The hamon is very beautiful and irregular, just the way I was hoping. The tsuba looks amazing and feels very sturdy. All of the fittings are tightly secured, and I couldn't see any wood peeking out from underneath the ito. The saya is well made and feels very sturdy, though the seppa doesn't fit completely flush with the saya when the sword is seated.
I haven't done much cutting with it so far, I only cut the box it came in, but it cut that very cleanly. Unfortunately the blade retained scratches from cutting the cardboard box, they only appear to be superficial, but they are still noticeable, I was hoping that the blade wouldn't have any scratches seeing as it was just cardboard. My only other issue is a small bend at the very tip, the last half millimeter or so, it's such a small bend that I didn't notice it until cleaning the blade for the second time. There is no way of knowing where that bend came from, since I didn't notice it until after I cut the cardboard box, but I would like to imagine cutting cardboard wouldn't cause it.
I received the two sword stand with my order, it looks nice and feels very sturdy, but it was somewhat annoying to put together without any instructions.
Over all it is a very nice blade that I hope to use for cutting (soft) targets. I might just order another to use as a display sword if the scratches and bent tip bother me enough.
Our responseGreat and honest review, but I thought I should mention - cardboard is actually really abrasive and will leave surface scratches on ANY sword, no matter how good or bad it is. There are micro-abrasive bits and pieces in cardboard, ground up glass, etc. It is fun to cut, but will leave 'battle marks' - many people are surprised by this as it is as you note 'just cardboard' - but it is what it is (we mention this in our free eBook 'Backyard Cutting 101'). The blades of these swords can be used on quiet hard targets - we tested them on the most solid part of a pork leg bone and it snipped right through with no edge damage, rolling or even a mark).
