I have a Golden Oriole katana made by Hanwei/Paul Chen for sale. It is brand new, unused, and very sharp. The blade's habaki has a very tight fit into the saya.
Includes a red cloth sword bag and a Hanwei sword maintenance kit. I would like to get $450 US shipped to Canada and US. I would prefer PayPal for payment, but money order is fine.
Here are some measurements I took:
Nagasa (Blade Length): 27.25"
Tsuka Length: 14.25"
Overall Length: 42.50"
Motokasane (Thickness at blade base): 7 mm
Sakikasane (Thickness at kissaki): 5 mm
Motohaba (Width at blade base): 1.25"
Motokasane (Width at kissaki): 13/16"
