The dragon a universal creature of ancient power - and for the Japanese a manifestation of the forces of the natural world. For the dragons personified and embodied the flow of the river, the fall of rain and the force of the tsunami. The dragon and its symbolic power adorn this katana on its menuki jewels and mother-of-pearl inlay on the saya scabbard.

The blade is made from differentially-hardened 1065 high carbon steel. The wooden tsuka grip is wrapped in rayskin with black tsuka-ito cord wrapped tightly over. The blade is pegged into the hilt with bamboo mekugi, allowing for disassembly if desired. The wooden saya is coated in red-black lacquer with a black woven sageo. The sword comes in a red and black cloth covered gift box with a wood-boxed cleaning kit and a black cloth sword bag

This katana was made in Longquan, China a region central to sword production during the Song Dynasty.
