The Shikoto Longquan Master Double-Edged Sword has a classic style Samurai design in all but the blade, which offers two edges instead of only one. The strong, T10 steel blade has a sharp point and is sharp out of the box. The black tsuba has a petal shape with a katana design embossed on it. Sitting above the tsuba, the handle is expertly wrapped in the traditional style with cord and rayskin and it's topped with a black metal pommel. The sword can be housed and displayed in its attractive, black glossy scabbard.
