Until the introduction of firearms, the lethal power of archery revered in Japanese culture holds even to this day. Tales of great feats of samurai archers are celebrated in the 21st century. A fitting motif for a katana that requires similar disciplines for perfection of the art: patience, persistence, control and strength. The 28” forged carbon steel blade has a real hamon and curves beautifully from kissaki to kashira. The contrasting colors blend gorgeously from black sageo and buffalo horn kurikata and kojiri to the golden tsuka tightly wrapped over white same (ray skin). The textured dark brown saya helps blend the piece together with the copper toned furniture and silver arrowhead menuki, seppa and habaki. The round tsuba’s detailed arrow fletching spokes and embossing on the fuchi and kashira reveal the superior craftsmanship of the Dragon King artisans. An amazing piece of color and form that meets the demand of function, this katana will fit uniquely in to your collection.
