Many Japanese swords offered today are interpretive copies of antiquities from feudal Japan, and they 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 the 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. The Dragonfly Katana is a beautiful sword with a distinctive teal-green silk cord-wrap and black samé (ray skin) handles, complementing rich iron furniture with a dragonfly motif. Their deeply curved and hand polished 1060 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.
