Each Shinwa Sword is handmade and hand-folded using traditional methods, providing an authentic, unique experience. The Blue Mikado Sword is both battle-ready and display-worthy with its unrivaled quality and meticulous attention to detail. It has a keenly sharp, 27 9/10” 1045 carbon steel blade with a blue finish, which extends from a brass habaki and iron tsuba. The hardwood handle is traditionally wrapped in blue cord over genuine white rayskin and the pommel is also iron. The 40 9/10” overall katana slides smoothly into a black, lacquered wooden scabbard with matching blue cord-wrap accent.
