Dragon King SD35180 Kohaku Katana 27.5" T10 Blade, Cord Wrapped Handle
CISD35180: SD35180 Kohaku Katana
Dragon King delivers yet again a simple yet most powerful katana motif in the Kohaku Katana. The koi kohaku (carp) battles up the rivers and climbs up waterfalls to reach its destiny which speaks to the symbolism of overcoming all adversity to achieve your goals.
The koi kohaku is embossed on the fuchi (collar) and fuchi-kashira (pommel) and in the pierced, black round tsuba. The silver, wave menuki (handle ornaments) compliment the black tsuka-ito (cord wrap) and white same (ray skin). The wavy hamon (temper line) of the 27.5" forge steel blade echoes the overall motif from kissaki (blade point) to the habaki (blade collar). A beautiful black lacquered saya with a buffalo horn kurikata (knob) is graced with a coral and white sageo (cord).
Beautiful and unpretentious in design but powerfully symbolic in the subtlest of appurtenances, the Kohaku Katana embodies everything the modest warrior wants in a samurai sword.
