The stylish sword-like shaped Zangetsu-type version has successfully been added to the popular line “BYAKKO” by Sakai Takayuki. 

The Byakko (White Tiger) blade is made of Yasuki’s traditional Nihonko or Hagane — Shiroko / White Paper No.1 Steel — which has been widely used for a very long time in Japan. The material makes extreme sharpness, very good edge holding and high working hardness.

The combination of Yasuki’s traditional Hagane & Sword-like arched-shape is quite special in addition to the precious handle with double buffalo horn rings.
