This exceptionally beautiful sword immediately puts its magic spell on the beholder. The decoratively etched blade features incredibly detailed embellishments, yet still exudes great harmony. The kanjis are etched into the damascus texture and only become evident when the hand-forged stainless steel blade is examined closely. The zinc-cast tsuba renders a winding dragon that is embellished with subtle gold appliques. The hilt features a ray skin underlay and is artfully wrapped with cotton tape. Shipped with a painted wooden sheath and sword bag. Decorative or collector's sword, not suited for use!
