One of our most traditional folded steel swords, this Japanese sword for sale has been folded 13 times to create over 8,000 layers in the metal. After removing impurities to strengthen the steel, our master-craftsmen etched the blade with a special oxidation process to create the deep dark hue that matches the sheath. Silver handle accents and an undulating dragon complete the dramatic design of this sword. Customize your weapon with different scabbard, sheath cord, and handle wrap color options at Swords of Northshire today.
