Shinwa’s Midnight Bamboo Katana is a masterpiece of design elements, meticulously hand-forged using ancient, time-honored techniques. The katana has a 27 3/8”, keenly sharp Damascus steel blade, which extends from a brass habaki. It has an expertly cord-wrapped hardwood handle and an intricately crafted bamboo-themed, cast metal alloy tsuba. The 41 1/2” overall katana slides smoothly into a black lacquered scabbard, which has decorative, black cord-wrap. The katana weighs 2.10 lbs.
