If you’re looking for a gorgeous folded steel weapon, the red dragon sword from Swords of Northshire is the perfect choice. Made by master swordsmiths trained in the traditional Japanese folding process, the over 8,000 layers in the blade make it durable and flexible enough to withstand cutting everything from tameshigiri to bamboo. After forging and sharpening, our smiths etch the blade through a unique oxidation process that results in a stunning red and black pattern on the steel.
Whether you plan on displaying this red bladed odachi or using it in training, it comes with a number of features including the black matte hardwood saya, silk sageo/ito, brass fittings, and genuine same’ (made of ray skin). Other important features include:
