Nature and the natural world have been a source of artistic inspiration in Japanese culture for many centuries. The floral motif is often used in Japanese decorative arts, from chrysanthemums to cherry blossoms and is a look that never fails to please the eye.
Cold Steels Flower Katana features a stylized floral design on its Tsuba and Silver/Nickel Kashira. It has a forged blade in 1060 carbon steel bent with convex sharpening. The edge of the blade has been given a differentially hardened heat treatment to create a distinctive Japanese-style clay-tempered Ripple.
The eye-catching wooden handle is tightly wrapped in black silk cord and includes the traditional Menuki and Samé (Ray Skin) stand. The included black lacquered Saya (scabbard) is made of fine wood and is finished with traditional Japanese-style silver/nickel fittings.
