If you’ve been hunting for a high quality, colorful folded steel sword that’s made following an ancient traditional Japanese swordsmithing process, the dragon katana from Swords of Northshire is the blade for you. After being folded 13 times, the dragon katana in red has over 8,000 layers. Once it’s been sharpened, the blade is then etched with an oxidation process to imbue its surface with the black and red hues.
Dragon Katana Details
There are three different color variations on the blade: black, red, and a fusion of the two. The completed dragon katana sword also comes with all the appropriate accessories in the color of your choice including:
A Lacquered Hardwood Saya (Scabbard)
Silk Sageo (Sheath Wrap)
Silk Ito (Handle Wrap)
Genuine Same’gawa (Rayskin Underwrap)
The tang is secured to the handle with two bamboo mekugi.
Durable enough for dojo students to practice cutting tameshigiri and bamboo, the dragon katana is the perfect choice for gifts and ceremonies. Each sword is individually handmade to order, so there will be some slight variation from sword to sword.
