"Art Should Hurt"
Prominently folded pure Damascus Steel blade with premium quality fittings. The one sword to set aside in your collection to appreciate the sheer art and beauty of an expertly folded Katana sword..
Before the advent of modern steel almost entirely free of imperfections, ancient swordsmiths would create a superior sword by evening out the impurities by folding the blade. While it is no longer necessary to fold a blade to even out impurities, when done properly a folded steel sword is the pinnacle of blade art..
This sword is one such example - all attention is drawn to the complex swirling 'Mokume' patterned folding lines of the 'Hadakirei' Katana by Ryujin Swords.
The fittings are simple but fully functional - Iron 'C' Ring Musashi tsuba, iron fuchigashira, black cotton ito and real rayskin with a glossy black saya. But the blade truly comes alive and really does need to be seen first hand to be appreciated..
