The Shinto Elite combines a hand-forged and differentially-tempered T10 high-carbon steel blade with the geometry of the Performance Series. Designed for multiple cuts in normal targets, the Shinto Elite features genuine Same (Rayskin) on the Tsuka, with a tightly-woven tsuka-ito in premium black Japanese cotton. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black cotton sageo. A finely rendered dragon, detailed in gold, with true front-and-back detail, forms the black iron tsuba and the rest of the hilt fittings are also of iron. Included is a Hanwei Japanese Sword Maintenance Kit and a cloth sword bag.

Please Note: Color and design of sword bag can vary
