Golden Oriole Wakizahi 

The elegantly simple lines of the Golden Oriole Wakizashi have long been favored by admirers of the Japanese sword. The story told by the stunning tsuba is of a mantis stealthily stalking the cricket, unaware that he is himself being stalked by the Golden Oriole. The deeply lacquered blue of the saya is repeated in the Japanese cotton tsuka-ito, and the Oriole appears again on the kashira. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
