Both a stunning beauty and fierce Damascus beast, our Shinwa Black and Red Damascus Samurai Sword has intricately beautiful blade patterns that give each blade a one-of-a-kind appearance and delivers layers of outstanding cutting power. The 28” powerful red Damascus steel blade is perfectly complemented by its black lacquered hardwood scabbard with red painted, striped accents. Other unique accents and details like the dragon-themed cast metal tsuba and menuki and brass habaki give the sword a custom look and feel. This piece features a hardwood handle that is wrapped with genuine ray skin and black nylon cord. Shinwa swords have a quality standard like no other!
