The Dragonfly Wakizashi is a relatively new addition to Bugei's lineup of swords.
Made to be a companion sword to the Dragonfly Katana, it shares the same design, just scaled down to wakizashi size (18.5" shinogi zukuri blade with chu kissaki, 6.5" tsuka). The blade is not overly thin, but the nearly flat surface of the blade makes it an excellent soft target cutter. Each wakizashi is individually hand forged and
from the superior Swedish Powdered Steel, available with or without bo-hi, and is very affordable. The Dragonfly Wakizashi tsuka is wrapped with dark brown silk tsukaito.
All of our swords are tested extensively before they are put into production.
We make sure that our swords perform as good as they
look. The Dragonfly held a special significance to the Samurai. Their seemingly tireless movement reflected the Samuraiís desire to give tireless
service to his feudal Lord. The dark brown ito is set off by the black same making this a unique offering from Bugei. The lower shinogi and the scant
hira-niku make this blade lighter and faster and gives it less resistance in cutting soft targets. The lighter weight, with available bo-hi, and
beautiful hamon and hada, a product of the forging and folding of the Swedish Powdered steel, will make this sword a favorite of Iai practitioners as
well as anyone interested in a light as well as fast sword. The fittings are made of iron that has been "antiqued" duplicating the look of many antique fittings. Ted Tenold is responsible for the design and authenticity of these fittings
and we think that they are some of the best that we have offered.
