Cold Steel Emperor Series Double Edge Katana 28.75" Carbon Steel Blade, Lacquered Wood Scabbard - 88DEC
CS88DEC: Emperor Series | Double Edge Katana
Cold Steel uses only traditional materials for their Japanese sword's fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver brass.
The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and each hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as absolutely possible.
All feature fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blades, each heat-treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove).
All come complete with a BLACK LACQUERED SCABBARD and a BLUE-VIOLET COVER BAG.
