"Art Should Hurt"
Monotempered 65mn Spring Steel colored blade (blue and silver) with wild wave pattern etching. Highly detailed saya, Aoitsunami (blue tsunami) themed fittings - white and blue color pattern.
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 28.75" 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. The sword has a consistent 'Blue tsunami' theme - the white/silvered tsuba depciting the waves themselves, the white coloration reprsentative of the choppy foam waves, the blue - the deep waters churning below. .
Make no mistake - it might be highly decorated but this is no mere ornament..
