Be the first to review this product

The blade of the Tonbo katana is hand-forged and folded from powder steel, with a medium-length (chu) kissaki. The saya is a deep black lacquer featuring gold dragonflies. High-quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka. The tsuka-ito is made of premium purple Japanese cotton. The tsuba is crafted in black iron, with detailing in gold and bronze and an exquisite dragonfly scene decoration. The silk sageo compliments this piece and is elegantly woven in dark blue and black. The fuchi and kashira are black and with bronze and brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The habaki is a one-piece brass construction.

Please note: Our range of katana, wakizashi and tantō are all made by hand and will feature the minor imperfections relating to this method of manufacture. This process ensures each piece is as unique as their historical counterparts.
