This is a beast of a Shinwa odachi that you absolutely have to see to believe. It comes in at a whopping 61 inches in overall length of sheer, sharp power. The 35 in. hand-forged blade is of beautiful, folded Damascus 1045 and 1060 high carbon steel going into a cast metal decorative tsuba. The handle is traditionally wrapped in blue nylon cord to match the blue lacquered scabbard.
