Sea waves are unique in the duality of their existence. They are fleeting yet eternal with their ebb and flow. The sound of sea waves can invoke a serene calmness and relaxation or fear and mortal dread when violently stirred. In medieval Japan the “katana” was symbol of peace, power and order but when in the wrong hands could be used for chaos, death and destruction. Our Sea Wave Katana from Dragon King embody similar dualities in their existence.

The placid blue saya conceals a rippling folded steel blade featuring bo-hi (groove) collared by a silver hibaki and notched seppa. The hada of folded 9260 and T10 steels and hamon mirror the silver turbulent waves depicted tsuba, kashira and fuchi. Silver and gold menuki contrast against the dark blue tsuka handle wrap overlaid white same (ray skin). A high quality blue and white sageo complete the saya accented by buffalo horn kurikata, koiguchi and kojiri. The Sea Wave Katana & Wakizashi feature another duality between being formidable weapons and works of art.

T10 Steel Information
T10 is basically the Chinese equivalent of our 1095, but it has silicon added as an alloying element to improve the steel's strength and wear resistance (edge-holding) properties. T10 blades can be tempered to a high hardness and hold an edge well. As with 1095, rust resistance is low, and T10 blades must be carefully maintained.
