Takanoha Kamon Engraving
Hawk feather - 「鷹羽」 in Japanese
The Takanoha is one of the 10 most used family emblems (judaimon) in Japan. It has about 280 known variations. 70% of people who have a hawk feather emblem actually use the Maru ni Chigai Takanoha.
This kamon's most famous bearer is probably Asano Takuminokami Naganori, the lord of the infamous 47 ronin. Asano was ordered to commit ritual suicide for assaulting Kira Kozuke-no-suke at the Shogun's palace. The ronin stormed Kira's villa on a winter night and avenged their master. To amend for this murder, they, in turn, committed seppuku.

1.5 cm fits on all weapons and is fairly small for a Kamon. We recommend this size only for Kamon with few details. Fits all weapons, including 24 mm Jo.
2 cm can be considered as standard. It fits on most weapons, except on the thinnest weapons such as the 24 mm Jo.
2.5 cm is fairly big and will not fit on thin Koryu Bokken, Tanto, Bo, Hanbo, and Jo.
If the selected size is too big for the ordered weapon, the Kamon will be adapted to the maximum engravable size.
