Symbolically revered for it dogged ability to swim upstream and up waterfalls, the Koi fish symbolizes perseverance, courage and the attainment of lofty goals. Ancient Chinese myth states that Koi which climbed the falls on the Yellow River at the “Dragon Gate” would become great dragons. If caught, the brave Koi fish will not flinch as it is cut with a knife – from this in particular the Samurai found inspirational courage against the blades they themselves would face.

This katana, from Paul Chen’s Hanwei, features the Koi prominently on its Tsuba. Its blade is hand-forged from T10 high carbon steel and its hamon is evident of its differential heat-treatment. The handle is covered in blackened rayskin, and its Tsuka-ito covering is of premium Japanese white cotton. The Saya is finished in black lacquer with a quality striped cotton sageo scabbard cord. This katana is built to cut. Comes with a cloth sword bag and traditional maintenance kit.
