In my last post I may have mentioned how looking at the dizzying array of modern day samurai swords that are available is almost sleep inducing for me. So I’m always stoked when I come across things like this:
Now this is a beautiful and unique blade. Literally. The blade of this Katana is actually laser etched with a pattern that looks for all the world like a beautiful dragons skin. This single feature is perhaps the most striking thing about this sword. But it doesn’t end there.
The guard is made up of 4 claws, looking like the outstretched talons of a dragon. The grip continues the dragon scale design, even incorporating different dorsal/ventral dragon scale patterns! That kind of attention to detail always blows me away. And the pommel is capped with an awesome dragon head. Of a very menacing variety.
Overall, I just love this katana. Definitely sets itself apart from the shiny steel sea of katanas on the market… Me likey. Me want… 🙂
