At Bugei we reach into history to design blades to be used by the student of traditional Japanese Sword Arts. The Bamboo
Katana was Bugei's first production sword. And all these years later the updated Bamboo Katana with its elegant
black fittings and gold
bamboo highlights continues to be one of our most popular swords.
The Bamboo Wakizashi was developed as a companion sword to the katana. The sword has an 18.5" blade with a 6.5" tsuka (handle).
Bamboo is a popular theme for Japanese sword mounts as it represents
both strength and flexibility, qualities highly prized by the Samurai.
The tsuba (sword guard) is made from a plate of soft copper that
is given a hard gloss black coating and then gold highlights are applied to the intricate bamboo. The tsuka (handle)
is wrapped in black silk ito to complement the
gloss black saya and glossy black fittings.
We also offer a katana and tanto with
fully matching furniture should you want to form a matching set (daisho).
Included with each sword are a sword bag and quality cleaning kit we import directly from Japan. And as is true of all
of our swords, each sword is carefully hand inspected and fine-tuned by Keith Larman before being
offered up for sale.
