Our Matsu katana is a light, fast, powerful cutter that proves itself time and time again, not unlike the hearty, strong trees growing on the rocky bluffs that grace many fantastic works of art throughout history. The wakizashi, bearing the same motif, is just as impressive as its larger counterpart. As this small blade shares both theme and ability with the larger version, we have chosen to call it the Bonsai.
The bonsai trees are designed to perfectly recreate beautiful plants found throughout nature, only on a much smaller scale. The twisted, gnarled trunks of ancient giants are re-created in a small package, likewise the delicate branches of the cascading cliff trees set up high in their miniature pots. Our Bonsai takes everything that makes the Matsu great, then shrinks it down into a nice, clean, fast wakizashi that would fit well at anyone’s side.
