Dragon King delivers yet again a simple yet most powerful katana motif in the Kohaku Katana. The koi kohaku (carp) battles up the rivers and climbs up waterfalls to reach its destiny which speaks to the symbolism of overcoming all adversity to achieve your goals.

The koi kohaku is embossed on the fuchi (collar) and fuchi-kashira (pommel) and in the pierced, black round tsuba. The silver, wave menuki (handle ornaments) compliment the black tsuka-ito (handle wrap) and white same (ray skin). The wavy hamon (temper line) of the 27 1/2" forge steel blade echos the overall motif from kissaki (blade point) to the habaki (blade collar). A beautiful black lacquered saya with a buffalo horn kurikata (knob) is graced with a coral and white sageo (cord).

Beautiful and unpretentious in design but powerfully symbolic in the subtlest of appurtenances, the Kohaku Katana embodies everything the modest warrior wants in a samurai sword. 

About Dragon King

The famed artisans of Dalian have returned to show to the sword world what quality, craftsmanship and ingenuity can produce under the superlative leadership of a true avant-gardist. By the guidance of master designer, Frenchie Jin, the next generation of cutlery enthusiasts will taste the steel of the fabled golden age of swords. 

Ever the student of the arts, Frenchie Jin combined the processes of contemporary mechanical construction and modern science with the classic arts, ancient aesthetics and philosophical imagery to produce many of the legendary pieces known today. Having designed over 600 different cold weapons in his 20-year career, to say that he and his team have mastered and advanced their craft would be an understatement. 

The Dragon King brand does not represent a company that just manufactures products but embodies a group of artisans who have been adeptly trained to duplicate ancient skillsets that can't be automated by machines on an assembly line. Not every blade that is forged becomes a sword. Not every casting that is poured becomes a component of a greater piece. The goal for improvement and innovation starts every day under Frenchie's guidance. 

Not confining their talents to sword making alone, the Dragon King team plies their abilities also to the production of knives, jewelry and other high end art-crafts. And not just in steel alone, these artisans craft wood and leather among many other materials and alloys.  Our journey together has only begun, but the fruits of that labor are coming to bear.
