All too often the more ornate and affordable Japanese sword and blade designs out there are let down by stainless steel (read: purely decorative) blades. But these are no mere ornaments..

While all the blades the Ryujin Art Sword series are primarily designed for display purpose, they all use well tempered carbon or spring steel in the blades - and make an excellent canvas for further refinement and customization, or are perfect as they are - an ornament with real bite..

In this case, the product in question is a 28.5" long monotempered 65mn Spring Steel blade, a truly functional and very tough blade - decorated with a unique, wild looking faux hamon that serves as the dividing line between the exposed steel edge and the colored flat and spine of the blade. Add to this an iron tsuba, solid - but basic - fittings, and a wild looking wooden lacquered saya that interprets the traditional five elements of Feng Shui (earth represented in the tsuba, fire and water in the saya and the blade itself, air in the Tachi-kaze of the bo-hi, and space by the black ito and black coloring in the saya).

Make no mistake - it might be highly decorated but this is no mere ornament..
