Paul Chen Hanwei Samurai swords are the best production Japanese swords in the world today. Each Hanwei Samurai sword is forged out of the best materials that can be found and can rival those made from the Japanese master smiths of old. Each Hanwei Japanese sword, wakizashi and tanto are hand forged from high carbon steels like 1060, T10, 1095 and in their higher end line, L6 Bainite and tamahagane. Paul Chen has devoted his life to making the most authentic Samurai swords at a price that is not out of reach for the normal consumer. Hanwei has even opened a forge dedicated to making advances in metalurgy for their new line of high alloy cutting swords and have developed some proprietary steels such as HWS1 and HWS2. We are proud to carry the full Paul Chen Hanwei Samurai sword line.
