Are you looking for a contemporary sword fitting of a ninja or samurai? The Modern Katana suits a variety of warriors, both new and old. Made from 1566 spring steel, this functional sword features a curved, single-edge blade. This curved blade design is typical of Japanese swords. The blade features a visible temper line, or hamon. There is a copper blade collar, or habaki, at the base of the blade.
The sword continues with a black guard, or tsuba. Then, the full-tang sword has a G10 fiberglass laminate handle. The dual-pinned, textured grip features silver accents in the shape of lion dogs, known as shi shi.
Finally, this modern samurai sword comes with a black scabbard. It has an olive green paracord wrapping, or sageo, near the top. Take this katana with you to your next battle or add it to your weapon collection. Combine it with the Modern Tanto (SD35490) for a fierce duo. When it is not in use, put it on a sword stand or keep it sharp with some sword maintenance supplies.
The term katana dates back to 720 AD with the Nihon Shoki chronicles. It refers to a curved, single-edged blade with either a circular or squared guard and long grip. The traditional katana belongs to the nihonto family of swords and was used by samurai in feudal Japan.
