Sleek and modern, the Shinwa Jade Defender Katana is a high-quality, handmade katana. The 28" keenly sharp 1045 carbon steel blade has a visible hamon line and extends from a brass habaki. The handle is wrapped in white faux rayskin and emerald-green cord. The matte black pommel is metal alloy as is the open-work circular tsuba. A green speckled design covers the black, lacquered wooden scabbard that protects the blade.
