Golden Oriole Wakizashi
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.
