Designed by Paul Southren and exclusively available at SBG -the Sanmai laminated blade takes a hard wearing core of T10 tool steel and encases it with 1095 carbon steel - it is not only effective, stiffening the blade and exposing the T10 core before it is clayed and differentially hardened, but this blade is an affordable piece of functional sword art.

Complimented with leather ito wrap using hishigami, solid black fittings with a Tomoe theme and a rattan reinforced saya - each sword is also subjected to two levels of QC to ensure it is the best it can possibly be at this price point.

Stock is very limited and it has been several years since we have had any Black Dragons in stock at all, so for those of you who are quick enough - a true bargain awaits.


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.
