Kept secretly within the Atsuta Shrine, the Kusanagi Sword is one of the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan - Only the Emperor is allowed to lay eyes on these treasures. This representation of the Kusanagi Sword is drawn from an artist’s impression of what the ancient sword kept may look like. The only account of the sword that has been ‘’leaked’’ purportedly comes from an Edo Period Shinto Priest who,along with other priests, accidentally viewed the sword while maintaining the shrine. He described the sword as being shaped like a Calamus leaf with a midsection that was like a fish spine. For revealing these details the priest was banished and the rest of the priests perished from strange diseases.

This inspired Kusanagi Sword has a blade crafted from 1085 high carbon steel with an antiqued finish inset into a hilt of antiqued brass. The blade is peened over the pommel to ensure a sturdy sword construction. Included with the sword is a sturdy wooden display box both lined and bound in lavish fabrics. The original Kusanagi sword is said to be kept inside a box within its shrine - thus too does this Kusanagi Sword come with a quality-crafted box to house and enshrine it within your own home.
