SBG Black Dragon Elite Katana
SOLD OUT & DISCONTINUED
Replaced by the Black Dragon Elite Mk II
The Seriously Upgraded version of the Classic Black Dragon Katana!
Designed by Paul Southren and exclusively available at SBG. While the blade is almost the same as the basic $359.99 classic solid bodied blade black dragon, extras like leather wrap done using traditional hishigami, gold and silver plated (work hardened) solid copper instead of plain brass- and then of course the stunning dragon themed mother of pearl inlay on buffalo horn insert saya (total added value is over $250) make this something very special indeed..
And all for a mere $140 $100 more than the classic model that started the whole thing in the first place...
Massive value, get in on these while they are still in stick..
ABOUT THE SBG DESIGNS SERIES
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.

This is a beautiful Katana, the balance is perfect, feels so nice. The Black leather wrap is really nice and tight and the Saya is AMZAING looking! The Dragon Theme is done so well on this sword that its now one of my Favorites. Ill do some cutting and see what she works like. God I love this Sword....
