The Higo Koshirae Wakizashi is characterised by the rounded steel Kashira, a hallmark of the Higo style. The hilt fittings have a lightly blackened finish, inlaid with a gold coloured frond detail.
Fully customisable from top to bottom, this is one of the most versatile models to use as the base for your made-to-measure Wakizashi.
