Expertly crafted with exceptional attention to detail, this Shinwa Japanese Katana sword features a massive 28.3" blade of hand-forged Damascus 10-fold layers of carbon steel. This traditional design offers a heavy blood groove spanning the massive blade and a hand-sharpened edge that will slice with ninja precision. Ornate details such as the oxidized zinc alloy tsuba, solid brass habaki and genuine ray skin tsuka (handle) with silk cord wrappings make this fully functional collectible katana sword a prized showpiece among collectors. The intricately designed tsuba features a Japanese Thunder God design. The hardwood scabbard has a high-gloss black lacquer finish with coordinating cord accents.
