"Art Should Hurt"
Monotempered 65mn Spring Steel colored blade (dark metal and silver) with wild wave pattern etching. Attractive solid brass fittings with black/gold colored saya with a cloud dragon theme.
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 - balanced a mere 4.75" from the tsuba and with a bo-hi for extra speed and maneuverability. The fittings are solid brass (which is part of the reason why the sword is balanced closer to the tsuba) and have a golden Cloud Dragon design. Complimented with attractive yet simple black ito over black (synthetic) rayskin, and a truly stunning gold spattered saya..
Make no mistake - it might be highly decorated but this is no mere ornament..
