Frenchie Jin and his team of artisans at Dragon King had been busy in the lead up to Chinese New Year – and the fruits of their labors have brought 5 new stunning, premium quality Katana to the table designed for every taste and budget..
Their most beautiful and highest quality addition – is the Tatsumaki Katana, a high polish T10 tool steel blade with silvered fittings, a rattan reinforced saya with buffalo horn fittings and the overall design is, quite simply, breathtaking..
Moving down the line, the next sword in the line up is the Savior Katana – which has the same level of exquisite blade polish and quality but slightly simpler fittings (i.e. no rattan wrap on the saya and iron with gold plated fittings instead of silvered ones) but is equally stunning.
From these two high end swords, we move to Dragon Kings mid-range offerings.
These swords are in the same class as the previously released Hana Katana – that is to say, they all have authentic fittings, are made from differentially hardened T10 tool steel – but have a more basic level of polish to make them more affordable (about half the price of the two swords above – as to properly polish a Katana by hand to the highest level is an extremely time consuming and expensive procedure).
The first of the two is the War Horse Katana (pictured above). And the second the arrow themed Fletching Katana (pictured below).
And then finally – the most affordable of them all – the Yanone Katana.
The blade on this sword is the same, but what makes it the most affordable is that it skips all the bells and whistles and strips away the extras such as the Buffalo horn on the saya, uses synthetic cotton and synthetic rayskin – and brings it down to a price point that almost any serious sword collector can afford – allowing you to own a Dragon King quality blade at the same kind of price as a Hanwei Practical Plus Katana..
And if this was not enough, along with this shipment of new swords is a restock of most of the previous models at the same time – including the Chinese swords such as the MASSIVE Chinese Jian and Saber..
Now that is what I call a BIG Sword..!
