John Lee Dragon Katana

Still today, the dragon plays an important role in Japan, and not only when it comes to New Year´s Day celebrations. In contrary to the western mysticism the dragon is in Japan a mystical creature which is said to bring the people good luck.
The katana has a handforged blade made of carbon steel with a fine hamon and has been tempered traditionally. The tsuba of this remarkable sword features a dragon which surrounds the sword. The sharp blade features a hi (fuller) to reduce the total weight. The handle (tsuka) is made of wood, has been coated with real fish skin and features two menukis. In addition it has been traditionally wrapped in black cotton. The tang is especially long and fixed with two bamboo pegs (mekugi). The scabbard (saya) is made of wood and the blade collar (habaki) is made of brass. This katana has been made according to original museum exhibitions. The sword comes with a certificate of origin, wrapped in cloth and packed in a high-quality wooden box. All measures are subject to estimation.
