Many Japanese swords offered today are interpretive copies of antiquities from feudal Japan which were made for warriors of small stature who seldom rose above five and a half feet. As beautiful and skillfully designed as these swords are, they may not be perfectly suited for modern warrior, who has grown to be a substantially taller and stronger version of his historical counterpart!
With that in mind, Cold Steel® has created the Dragonfly Series, a line of Japanese swords featuring thicker, wider and heavier blades. These beautiful swords have a distinctive teal-green silk cord wrap and black samé (rayskin) handles complementing rich iron furniture with a dragonfly motif. Their deeply curved and hand-polished 1060 high carbon steel blades terminate in a long iris leaf point for maximum cutting potential.
Additionally, these swords come with two protective bags: a blue cotton travel bag and an intricately decorative display bag made from the finest heavy silk brocade.
