The art of wielding a katana, much like archery, requires patience, persistence, control, and strength. The Fletching Katana fuses the traditional Japanese sword with emblems that tells the tale of great samurai archers of legend. With its incredible high carbon steel blade, this functional sword features an incredible hamon that spans the full tang of the blade from the pommel to the tip. Endowed with traditional style, these modern materials prove reliable under trial. Ray skin has been used to form the tsuka, or handle, wrapped in a golden-brown cloth. The copper-toned, archery inspired fuchi, kashira, and tsuba pair well with the silver arrowhead menuki that decorates the tsuka. The swords matte black saya, or scabbard, has been adorned with a buffalo horn endcap and knob and black sageo strap.
