Well known for the quality of their Japanese style blades, Ryujin has branched out into the Tactical Sword market with their interpretation of a wicked looking (and highly effective) wasp waisted gladius sword design.
Based on classic leaf blade designs of antiquity with Japanese elements in the hilt, the monotempered 1060 carbon steel blades leverage the purity of modern crucible steel to the hilt, which in this case is as simple, and as sturdy as can be and ensures that the design itself has no weak points. For the hilt is gripped by the tang itself, made to fit the hand ergonomically with synthetic black rayskin, brown rayon and menuki risers to make it stylish and as comfortable and secure in the hand as possible.
Designed to be used single handed, with the off hand free for a high lumen flashlight, firearm or other blade, the Tactical Wasp Waisted Gladius is balanced between offense and defense, and while the leaf shaped blade is clearly a powerful thrusting sword, the angles of the blade and its inherent heft ensures it is no slouch in the chopping and slicing departments either. Made from monotempered 1060 carbon steel, the Tactical Wasp Waisted Gladius is balanced between hardness and flexibility - ensuring it will not fail at the critical moment.
The sword is completed with a lanyard hole and paracord lanyard to ensure that it stays close at hand no matter what happens in the chaos of combat - and is complimented by a detailed leather over wood core scabbard, leather belt and suspension system giving you the complete package at a fraction of its true value. Definitely a must have item for any 'bug out' bag - especially with the current introductory special pricing (available while stocks last).
