Silver Dragon Katana
These blades are hand-forged, so they do come with the care and craftsmanship of an expert. The sharpened 1045 carbon steel is just what you'd expect from a well made Japanese-style sword that is going to complete your samurai ensemble. This steel samurai sword can withstand light use in sparring or demonstrations, but mostly will look awesome as you pose for pictures or perfect your stances for an audience. The 28-inch long blade has a simulated hamon line, or the wavy pattern that runs along the fine edge of the sword. This is normally created by dipping the edge into powered mixtures of different elements during the forging process, and is meant to make the sharp edge harder than the back spine of the sword, so it can start sharp longer. Since you won't be slicing through cinder blocks with this ninja blade, the wavy hamon line is to bring the Samurai aesthetic. The carbon steel blade does have a fuller, or blood line, along the length of the blade, again, to create a true Japanese look to this sword. At just 2 pounds 4 1/2 ounces, you'll be swinging this sword around more often than you think, with the nice balanced weight that feels great in your hands.
The saya of this modern katana is made of durable PVC, which is not only stronger than wood, but will resist the tendency to warp or mold if it does get exposed to moisture. It also creates a solid fitted scabbard to house the katana, and gives the outside a gloss onyx-black finish. Along the middle of the saya is a detailed flying dragon, with green scales and white swirling clouds around it, bringing luck and protection to whoever possesses this impressive sword. What makes this sword a true Silver Dragon Katana is the tsuba, or handle guard, that protects your hand from incoming strikes as you war for your country and honor! The guard is cast in an aluminum zinc alloy that is brushed to a shining silver color. The tsuba is an actual silver dragon that is spiraled around in a 3-inch diameter circle, creating an infinitely looped serpent that keeps your grip on your weapon safe from attacks. The kashira, or pommel guard, is also a piece of brushed aluminum that secures the wrapped handle.
Having this Samurai sword on display will allow you to show the handsome craftsmanship of the handle. The dark teal nylon rope that wraps around the grip is known as the tsuka-ito, and is an iconic part of true katanas. The woven pattern creates diamond eyelets that allow you to show see the synthetic ivory color ray skin, and also allows you to see the two gold-colored hard pplymer menuki, or handle ornaments, help fasten the ray skin to the wooden handle. These ornaments are, you guessed it, dragons! And they also aid in securing the intricate wrapping so it doesn't move around. This handle fits securely into the PVC saya, with the help of the wide brass habaki that connects the sharpened steel blade to the handle. Everything about this samurai sword screams authentic, that is, everything but the price tag!
