Black Dragon Hand-Forged Katana

Price: $199.95
Dragons are honored as symbols of wisdom, leadership, and strength in Japanese culture. With both the power to destroy and protect, this Black Dragon Hand-Forged Katana is an authentic Japanese style katana that mirrors these venerated characteristics of the dragon with its high quality, hand made design.

The fine craftsmanship of this traditional handmade katana is apparent in each of its components, from the pommel of the handle to the sharp tip of the sword. The tsuka, or handle, is 11.5 inches long and spares no detail. The real ray skin wrapping is a clean white color and textured with small, raised bumps that improve grip. The black cloth tsuka-ito, or wrap, is a sharp contrast to the rayskin beneath that gives this samurai sword a distinguished appearance. Beneath the woven diamond pattern of the cotton wrappings are gold colored menuki- small, decorative handle ornaments that complement the greater beauty of this traditional weapon. At the base of the handle is the brass kashira, or pommel. Finished in matte black, the kashira embellished with a raised image of a dragon's head.

Between the exquisitely crafted tsuka and the hand forged blade of this traditional katana is the tsuba, or guard. Composed of brass and finished in black, this 3 inch diameter tsuba is the centerpiece of this Japanese style weapon. An ornate dragon curls and twists across the tsuba. This noble legendary beast is so detailed that even the individual scales on its powerful, winding body can be seen. The black-finished brass fuchi, the sleeve between the handle and guard, is also adorned with an intricate dragon design.

The 1060 carbon steel blade of this hand-forged sword is a testament to fine, Japanese style craftsmanship. This dragon katana was forged using the the clay tempered Maru-kitae method. At 28.5 inches long, this sharp steel blade has a genuine hamon line, proof of the artistry required to forge it. Opposite of the ripple line is a blood groove that lightens the blade. Overall, this authentic katana weighs 2 pounds and 3.5 ounces while unsheathed. The shining hand forged blade, and gorgeous tsuba and handle, together create the full 40.5 unsheathed length of this glorious Japanese style sword.

When sheathed in its glossy black lacquered saya, or sheath, the beauty of this handmade weapon is still apparent. At 41.5 inches long sheathed, the graceful curve of this katana is still discernible. The saya is crafted from wood and finished with a polished black lacquer. The scabbard has black sageo wrappings with the gold-colored shito-dome visible between the braids. This hand-forged samurai sword in its sheath weighs 2 pounds and 11.5 ounces. If you wish to preserve this handcrafted weapon and its scabbard until you display it with your other katanas, you can store it in its refined black cloth sword bag with a tie.

From its detailed tsuka with genuine ray skin, black wrappings, and menuki, to the intricate dragon tsuba, and down to the point of its authentic carbon steel blade, this high-quality dragon sword captures the fine workmanship involved in forging samurai swords.
