Differentially Hardened T10 Tool Steel Blade with Prominent, Real Hamon. High Polish and Premium Fittings.
The clouds gather in the sky as the sun sets golden on the horizon as the birds find their refuge. The roar of the wind and thunder become indistinguishable amongst the claps of lightening. In the distance the rising spiral of wind and debris twist in to the heavens while the dragon’s torrent builds to its destructive climax as the legend manifests devastation before your fear filled eyes. The artisans of Dragon King unveil their latest embodiment of Japanese lore in the Tatsumaki Katana.
The theme carries throughout this katana in almost every aspect. The silver tsuba, fuchi, fuchi-kashira feature the dragon, cloud and lightning motif. Even the 27 7/8” blade reflects the torrent with the gunome-midare hamon style. The golden saya, brown sageo and handle wrap contrast beautifully against the silver furniture. The black rattan wrapping, buffalo horn kurikata and kojiri on the golden saya give the katana even deeper depth. The hardest decision you will have to make is whether or not to keep it as a collectible or as a functional sword in your armory.
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.
