Dread Pirate Katana
The high seas call for a high carbon steel, to protect against wear, tear, and worst of all, erosion. The 1045 of this steel sword means it has a greater resistance to rust, and while it is not the highest amount of carbon these Japanese-style weapons can have, it will do for you and your mateys. The sharpened blade is decorated with a hamon line that is purely aesthetic, but the fine edge of this 28-inch long blade will make cutting through the sails of your enemy's ship a breeze. At just 2 pounds 3 ounces, this seaworthy katana weighs less than most peg-legs, and it's scabbard adds only 10 ounces more. That means you can use the 26 inches of adjustable strap to swing this sword on your back and start swabbing the deck.
The handle of this skull-tastic samurai sword is first wrapped in a layer of white synthetic ray skin, as the pirates respect the sea and wish for the rays to keep their actual skin. Then a black leatherette cord is carefully woven around in a traditional katana tsuka-maki pattern, leaving diamond shaped holes for the white color to pop through from underneath. The combination of these layers leaves the handle with a soft yet slip resistant grip that will keep it in your hands no matter how many seagulls you are fighting.
This pirate sword possesses some elegant decorations that even the old seadogs will admire. The kashira, or the metal cap on the handle pommel that keeps the wraps in place, has a golden painted inlay of some sailor sparrows, fit for the men and women of the sea. The tsuba, or rounded hand guard that is essential for a katana is 3-inches in diameter, painted black with gold painted Jolly Roger, or the classic pirate skull and crossbones. This symbol was used to mark poisonous materials after pirates used it as a way of scaring the daylights out of other ships. You can scare your mates, your caption, and your cab driver with this 39-inch long sword that is only 2 inches longer once you add the scabbard.
Raise the anchor and man the sails as you take off with your new display katana in tow. This battle-ready sword can be used for demonstrations or light cutting, but it is mostly designed to inspire the dreadful pirate within. Or accompany you on the next Caribbean cosplay adventure. But remember that it is your sword, your sea companion, and that you can do with it as you wish.
