The Shinwa Black Knight Katana has proven itself time and again, and it holds its own against any of today’s most expensive katana, outperforming many. It has a keenly sharp, full-tang 27 1/2” black Damascus steel blade that was handcrafted by skilled swordsmiths. The hardwood handle is traditionally wrapped in cord-wrap over faux rayskin and the biohazard-style, cast tsuba is black. The 40” overall katana slides smoothly into a black lacquered, wooden scabbard with black cord-wrap accents. The Black Knight is heirloom-quality and built to be treasured by generations of your descendants - your legacy preserved in hand forged Damascus steel.
