Our Dragon King Traditional Japanese Katana was inspired by Ryujin, the supreme deity of the sea in Japanese mythology. This god is depicted as a dragon, symbolizing the power of the ocean. The 28 3/4” 1060 high carbon steel blade is sharp and polished, also bearing a traditional heavy blood groove down its center and the hardwood handle is wrapped in genuine ray skin and black cotton cord with a dragon menuki. The cast brass gold and black tsuba of this sword was crafted using the powerful iconic dragon as the inspiration and the theme is carried through on the pommel, as well. A black lacquered wooden scabbard sheathes the blade to protect it from the elements. Also included are a sword bag and decorative gift box.
