This unique Wakizashi is based on an original from the collection of Mr. Steven Seagal and is essentially a Naginata blade which was re-hilted into a Wakizashi-sized sword. It was not unusual for Japanese warriors to have broken swords remounted and repurposed into smaller swords and daggers, or to even take Naginata and Yari polearm heads and have them reused to make deadly efficient daggers and short swords. Quality weapon steel was precious and was not a commodity to be wasted.

By using a Naginata blade this Wakizashi has become an eminently suitable slashing and cutting weapon; the wide curve of its striking portion gives it a slight forward balance and a wide cutting plane to create a weapon designed for deep and decisive cutting. This blade is forged from 1060 and 1095 high carbon steel which has been folded together into a single blade billet. The blade has been differentially-tempered in the traditional manner with clay to give it a hardened edge and a shock-absorbing blade body.

The tsuba, fuchi and kashira hilt fittings are iron with detailing picked out in 24-karat gold. These fittings depict the Buddhist ‘’Vajra’’ - a symbol that melds a symbolic hardness of diamond with the sudden force of a thunderbolt. It is a symbol often used to represent the moment at which enlightenment is attained. The grip is hardwood with a tight, spiralled binding of black leather. A scabbard of glossy black-lacquered wood with a sageo cord completes the sword. Also included is a high quality embroidered sword bag.
