A beautiful onyx blade accentuated by a gold and obsidian sheath, this black steel sword is a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. After sharpening, the blade is etched with an oxidation process to give the surface a deep, rich color. Opt for a purple Ito and Sageo or choose to customize your order with a number of other colors.
