A.P.O.C. Tactical Katana by Dragon KingA.P.O.C. Tactical Katana by Dragon King1
Ultra durable 9260 Spring Steel Blade designed by the legendary Gus Trim.
Before the seven seals are torn away... CAS proudly introduces the A.P.O.C. Swords from Dragon King. Whether it be plague, natural disaster, mass hysteria, nuclear fallout, zombies, alien invasion or mankind’s inevitable A.I. war, these tactical swords feature a meek and functional design against unremitting maintenance and corrosion in those bleak future days. But such thought in design are expected from combining the expertise of the artisans of Dragon King and the mind of sword maker, Gus Trim. Tactically black and no frills, the removable durable black G10 handle scales cover a thick full-tang on the Black Oxide coated 9260 Spring Steel blades.
The black textured fiberglass sheaths are fitted to a Molle compatible kydex platform that allows you to secure your swords to belt or pack in multiple carry positions. A hole in the end of the scabbard allows drainage in wet environs. A notch in the handle and the platform allows for stealth unsheathing as well as locking the sword securely for inverted maneuvers. No preparations for the end times are complete without an A.P.O.C. tactical sword for when the bullets run out, the knives are too short and your life is on the line.
The A.P.O.C. Katana at a glance looks atypical except for the classic Japanese styled blade. But fans of Gus Trim will recognize his subtle style and perfection in a design that’s historically atypical for this famed sword maker. When he was still making this sword, Gus called this model the "Little Tigress" and it's easy to see why. The 11 3/8” full tang G10 handle glides gently in the hand as the handle slabs, rivets and blade profile are effortlessly flush all around preventing blisters or lesions which eliminates a big problem when combatting in an infectious environment. The hooked guard prevents your fingers from sliding onto the blade edge. The 23 1/2" blade edge and contour features another Atrim profiling feature allowing precise cuts and slices. At 36 5/8” overall and 2 lbs 6 oz the A.P.O.C. Katana is hefty enough to split skulls and sever limbs but light enough to not hinder a valiant retreat.
About Dragon King
The famed artisans of Dalian have returned to show to the sword world what quality, craftsmanship and ingenuity can produce under the superlative leadership of a true avant-gardist. By the guidance of master designer, Frenchie Jin, the next generation of cutlery enthusiasts will taste the steel of the fabled golden age of swords.
Ever the student of the arts, Frenchie Jin combined the processes of contemporary mechanical construction and modern science with the classic arts, ancient aesthetics and philosophical imagery to produce many of the legendary pieces known today. Having designed over 600 different cold weapons in his 20-year career, to say that he and his team have mastered and advanced their craft would be an understatement.
The Dragon King brand does not represent a company that just manufactures products but embodies a group of artisans who have been adeptly trained to duplicate ancient skillsets that can't be automated by machines on an assembly line. Not every blade that is forged becomes a sword. Not every casting that is poured becomes a component of a greater piece. The goal for improvement and innovation starts every day under Frenchie's guidance.
Not confining their talents to sword making alone, the Dragon King team plies their abilities also to the production of knives, jewelry and other high end art-crafts. And not just in steel alone, these artisans craft wood and leather among many other materials and alloys. Our journey together has only begun, but the fruits of that labor are coming to bear.

Alright, finally even though the shipping was earlier than expected. First of all the sword is solid and symmetrical! Sheath is a good in tial concept. Just the right amount of weight not too light and not too short. This is sharp as can be. I will re review after a cutting session. And yes this is tatami and bamboo capable from the feel.
