The clouds gather in the sky as the sun sets golden on the horizon as the birds find their refuge. The roar of the wind and thunder become indistinguishable amongst the claps of lightening. In the distance the rising spiral of wind and debris twist in to the heavens while the dragon’s torrent builds to its destructive climax as the legend manifests devastation before your fear filled eyes. The artisans of Dragon King unveil their latest embodiment of Japanese lore in the Tatsumaki Katana.
The theme carries throughout this katana in almost every aspect. The silver tsuba, fuchi, fuchi-kashira feature the dragon, cloud and lightning motif. Even the 27 7/8” blade reflects the torrent with the gunome-midare hamon style. The golden saya, brown sageo and handle wrap contrast beautifully against the silver furniture. The black carved wood, buffalo horn kurikata and kojiri on the golden saya give the katana even deeper depth. The hardest decision you will have to make is whether or not to keep it as a collectible or as a functional sword in your armory.
