Painstakingly handcrafted, exuding grace and imperial might, Ryumon's striking, illustrious "Sceptre" Katana was iInspired by legendary ancient Japanese imperial swords.This exquisite beauty is a savage beast, with capable muscle and unabashed ruthlessness hiding beneath its noble trappings.The impressive 28 1/2" tanto blade is forged from Damascus steel by master metalsmiths who employ a centuries-old technique to achieve the distinctive steel's breathtaking whirlwind of ripples, waves and swirls. The Damascus steel blade is carefully hand-beveled and honed for an impossibly sharp edge and the upswept tanto point yields awesome piercing and penetrating power, as well. Cast from traditional antiquated brass, the handsomely designed guard beautifully offsets the silky smooth Damascus blade. Rosettes, rays of light and other features blanket the guard in delightfully tactile raised relief; the splendid relief design is echoed on the Sceptre's brass pommel and subtle menuki, the latter tucked away subtly beneath the brown cord-wrapped genuine ray skin handle. The Sceptre's rustic copper saya is a work of art in its own right. Opulently adorned in delicately cast gilt ornamentation from top to bottom, the brilliant saya provides the ideal housing for a sword of this caliber. Unique calico cord wrapping affords the perfect finishing touch to the unique saya, and the sword-and-sheath ensemble as a whole. You can rest assured this alluring Damascus masterpiece is built to last a lifetime and beyond - a fine family heirloom sure to be cherished for generations to come!
