Description

The Japanese katana is one of the most popular sword designs, due to its reliability as a first-rate weapon and its intrinsic beauty. This intricately detailed, yet functional katana features a dragonfly tsuba. The dragonfly (tombo) in Japan is emblematic of martial success, as various names for the insect are homophones for words meaning “victory”. The dragonfly is also auspicious because references in the Kojiki and Nihongi link it in both name and shape to the old kingdom of Yamato.

This fine example shows both of those qualities. Measuring 39" overall, this katana features a 27 3/4" hand forged, 1045 steel blade. The hardwood handle is covered with genuine rayskin and heavy blue nylon cord wrap, and is accented with an intricately detailed brass tsuba and pommel. This item also includes a hardwood sheath with classic black lacquer finish.
