Urban Graffiti Katana
This samurai sword is fit for the modern warrior. It has an expertly sharpened 1045 carbon steel blade that is well fitted to the handle and slides into the saya with ease. The razor sharp 28-inch long blade has seen a few combats, since you've done some demonstration sparring with your roommate, but it still holds the fine edge that the swordsmith gave it at inception. The hamon line is aesthetic, but the blood grooves running along the back edge are real, designed to let air flow into a wound and blood to flow out. This display sword hasn't seen that kind of action, but you know it could deal out some damage if it had to.
You snap a picture of the new neighborhood street art and send it to your roomie, wondering if they'd know what wall it came from. You take off down the wet pavement towards your flat, and think of the pop art scabbard that houses your home protection katana. With endless options for display samurai swords, it was refreshing to find a hipster print that suited your personality. The matte graphic print has sneakers and foam fingers, and many other things you'd see on a busy city street. You know the rain won't warp the scabbard, since it is made of PVC, ensuring it is both mold and warp resistant. This is a huge plus in a place that sees a lot of rain. It helps keep the shining blade protected as well.
Since you've hung your comic art print weapon on the wall, you haven't felt the grip of the wrapped tsuka, or handle, that has ivory colored synthetic ray skin and two bright gold colored dragon pendants securing the layers together. This is all wrapped up tightly with a traditional woven pattern that creates the classic diamond-shaped holes common to most katanas. The dusty purple colored cord was a great choice to compliment the intense graphic picture, and you've stared at that handle while lost in thought countless times. Something about the soft tones, the busy pattern, or the attention to detail is where you continue to draw inspiration from having it around.
When you have held this 2 pound 5 ounce samurai sword, to show off or for a demonstration, you remember the unique tsuba, or rounded handguard, that is a solid black steel disk minus one small flower print stamped out of the metal. You like it because you tend to rub your hand right against the tsuba during combat, and more holes would just mean more chances to catch a finger by accident. When your roommate came at you in friendly fire with a rattan bo staff, you were able to protect your fingers from the downward attack, and push the weapon away. He's just lucky you didn't decide to turn his combat staff into two short escrima!
You're other friends have a few home defense weapons around the house, but you don't have to bother with any of those high maintenance tools. You prefer having the artistic and authentic sword that ancient warriors used for hundreds of years. Everyone always comments on this hip and cool katana. With the high quality materials and high carbon steel blade, you know that you made a great choice picking this up. You may print a picture of the graffiti wall and display it right next to your street art samurai sword.
