Nature and the natural world have been a source of artistic inspiration in Japanese culture for many centuries. The Flower motif is frequently used in Japanese decorative arts, from Chrysanthemums to Cherry Blossoms, it’s an elegant kind of ornamentation and it is a look that never fails to be pleasing to the eye. Our Flower Katana features a stylized floral design on its silver/nickel Tsuba and Kashira. It has a forge folded 1060 carbon steel blade with a convex grind. The edge of the blade has been given a differentially hardened, heat treatment to create a clay tempered Hamon in the distinctive Japanese manner. The attractive hardwood handle is tightly wrapped in black silk cord and includes the traditional Menuki and Samé (Ray Skin) backing. The included black lacquered Saya (scabbard) is made from hardwood and is finished with traditional Japanese styled silver/nickel fittings.
Please Note: It is common for this item to have minor cosmetic blemishes such as light scratches and light scuff marks on the glossy black lacquer finish.
