About Ryumon:

For more than 2600 years, the "City of Treasure Sword", Longquan, is known for making the best swords in the world. Located within the border of South Zhejiang, and under the Fengyang Mountain, Longquan is rich in resources which are ideal for crafting swords.

During the period of Warring States (770-476 B.C.), a famous sword maker named Ou Yezi created the most renowned sword in Longquan. Since then, the secret arts of crafting swords have been passed down from generation to generation.

Ryumon swords are hand forged by master craftsmen with years of experience from Longquan. These master sword smiths combine modern knowledge with traditional secrets to produce superior quality swords known for their durability, sharpness, and exquisite craftsmanship.

5 out of 5Rating by Bohds7 on Mar 2nd 2013:I used to have the Machine made version of this, but since Sandai Kitetsu was my foiravte katana of Roronoa Zoro, that is why I bought this Hand Forged version, the moment I had it and hold it, it feels pretty heavy as if it has some kind of curse

This tanto is very nice. I'm in love with it! Haha! But seriously it's a beautiful tanto. The Saba is very dark red, the handle is wrapped tight the details are amazing. It's not quite as sharp as I wanted it to be but not a problem after a few swipes with my smith diamond sharpener it was extremely sharp. You can tell the difference in other metals from this sense it's folded steel it's much sharper that others. It stabs through things like everything is made of butter. Great piece to finish my samurai collection (katana, wakizashi, tanto) True Swords made me happy once again!
