Dragon King Autumn Ginkgo Leaf Katana

Availability: In stock

$777.00

Quick Overview

Dragon King's Autumn Leaf Katana embodies the contrasting metaphors of endurance and finality in its motif. The blackened, moon shaped stainless steel tsuba silhouettes falling gingko leaves as the moon coaxes songs from the grasshopper and bell cricket menuki (handle ornaments), both symbols of good fortune in Japanese culture. The 5160 carbon steel blade features a 1 ½" kissaki (point) and geometry conducive to rigorous cutting without chipping on soft and semi-hard targets.

Details

The symbolism of the ginkgo leaf for longevity is about as ancient as the tree itself as well as its nature of duality. Dragon King's Autumn Leaf Katana embodies both of these contrasting metaphors of endurance and finality in its motif. The blackened, moon shaped stainless steel tsuba silhouettes falling gingko leaves as the moon coaxes songs from the grasshopper and bell cricket menuki (handle ornaments), both symbols of good fortune in Japanese culture. The 5160 carbon steel blade features a 1 ½" kissaki (point) and geometry conducive to rigorous cutting without chipping on soft and semi-hard targets.

The tan tsuka-ito (handle wrap) offests the blackened fuchi and fuchi-kashira on the double mekugi (bamboo pin) pinned handle. The brown textured lacquered saya (scabbard) features a buffalo horn rimmed koiguchi (scabbard mouth) and kurikata (knob) and black sageo (cord).
