The neighboring Kouga and Iga clans of feudal Japan were bitter
enemies for centuries and their warring Ninja families have been
immortalized in Japanese literature. To commemo- rate these secretive
warriors we have introduced our Kouga and Iga Ninja-To.
The Kouga made by Hanwei features a dismountable double-pegged Tsuka
with a battle wrap over black rayskin and Kouga Mon Menuki. The
blackened iron Tsuba features the Kouga Mon and pierced Kanji, a theme
repeated on the Fuchi/Kashira. The Kanji and Mon are also employed on
the blackened fittings of the spiked Saya. The Kouga features a forged
high carbon blade, differentially quenched to an edge hardness of 60HRc.
Essential tool for the Ninjutsu practitioner.
