Hanwei Odachi

Forging and heat treating a 49" blade is a tough task but the Hanwei smiths have mastered the technique and we're excited to bring you our functional and historically accurate O-dachi. The "O" means great and we're not kidding. With an overall length of 67" there's only one way to describe this sword - large! Patterned after an original from the 14th Century, when Odachi were still in use on the field of battle, this sword is a must for Japanese sword enthusiasts.   The menuki are the traditional Japanese Hollyhock motif (aoi).

This is a truly awesome sword.  If you love big swords - you are going to have to get the Hanwei Odachi.
