A Battle Ready Katana - Includes Decorative Silk Bag!
The classic Japanese battle ready katana has been celebrated for centuries, not only for it's elegant lines and simple beauty, but also for the craftsmanship skills that went into it's construction. Most Japanese katanas offered today are interpretive copies of antiquities from feudal Japan. They were made for warrior's of small stature who seldom rose above five and a half feet. These traditional sized swords may not be perfectly suited for the taller, stronger twenty first century warrior, who benefited from contemporary advances in childhood nutrition and healthcare.
As a way of compensating for this size disparity, Cold Steel has created the Dragonfly katana. This katana features a thicker, wider, heavier blade, with excellent polish, quality of furnishings, and attention to detail.
Distinctive teal-green silk cord wrap and black ray skin is used on the handle and robust black iron fittings bear the classic Japanese Dragonfly motif. The polished blade is razor sharp and strongly curved and terminates in a long "irse leaf" point for maximum cutting and slashing effectiveness.
This katana comes with two protective bags. There is a blue cotton travel bag and an intricately decorative display bag that's made from the finest heavy silk metallic brocade.
