Ryujin DH T10 Tool Steel Katana - "the Kurokensai"
IN STOCK & ON SPECIAL
LIMITED EDITION DESIGN
You are probably familiar with the Ryujin Custom Katana Series - well, this sword is made using exactly the same process and features a cool new all black fittings style as per popular request. LIMITED EDITION DESIGN
The limited edition series Ryuin T10 Tool steel blades use the exact same blades and components as $229.99 Ryujin Custom Katana series, but being pre-made and without the extra work of customization, we are happy to pass on the savings to you with a series of our best design configurations.
As stated, the blades are the star of the show - in this case we use the stronger solid bodied blade for maximum cutting power.
This particular limited edition model is called the 'Kurokensai' meaning the 'Black Sword Saint' as a reference to the legendary figure Miyamoto Musashi, who is credited with designing the enigmatic so called 'double c ring tsuba' which alludes to his masterpiece on the art of war and strategy 'Go Rin No Sho' or 'the Book of Five Rings'
As befitting a sword bearing the title 'Sword Saint' the fuchigashira and tsuba are solid iron - and every fitting apart from the habaki and the menuki ornament in the handle is black (even the genuine rayskin is dyed black), giving it a very mean and intimidating look.
Stock is limited, so if you like this design don't let it slip away. Order now before the savings are gone for good.

I stumbled upon this unexpectedly and bought it on a whim, and I'm glad I did. This is a wonderful sword at an unbelievable price. The sword is well-balanced, very lively, and cuts extremely well. The tsuka has a perfect taper and shape for me. Everything is well fit. The beveled iron Musashi-style guard is very well done. The black samekawa adds that perfect touch. Now I need a matching wakizashi!
