In homeage to my Australian heritage and made in mid 2013 - the year of the snake - the red belly black snakes are designed to be used and/or displayed as a set and with unique, twin bo-hi on both blades, these blades strike like the feared Aussie killer snake.


While the designs vary, all the blades in the series are made from the same classic differentially hardened T10 Tool Steel our SBG Black Dragon Forge has made so well for us since 2008.

The stunning, tempered blades are all hand made in the traditional method and then tempered to produce an authentic hamon.

Special attention is paid to small details like the blade termination - those models with bo-hi are carved by hand instead of rounded by machine like almost every other sword at this price point. Each blade also has a real boshi and yokote.

Likewise fittings are also given special care with, ito wraps alternate, materials and fittings are all top quality and each sword is carefully inspected for flaws and defects resulting in a very high quality product that we have priced to make a very limited quantity run of (10) pcs available.

Got these earlier this year. Really nice combo...I'd love to say for sure they are functional, but I can't as they'll never be used to cut. Such a nice set that I felt it was better to hold and keep clean.

The only thing I miss is a display, as these are the type that you display, definitely high quality for price.
