Blog post:- The Art of Japanese Style Sword Making and Displaying.
The classic Japanese battle sword in all its incarnations has been celebrated for centuries, not only for its elegant lines and simple beauty but also for the technique and skill that went into its construction.
A hybrid between the katana and tanto, the wakizashi was a rightly feared weapon thanks to its razor-sharp edge and ease of use with either one or two hands. Crafted from the finest quality steel, this reproduction by cold steel is made in the traditional shape and style but utilizes modern manufacturing techniques to create a weapon of long-lasting quality.
The handle of this sword's blade is covered in a distinctive green silk wrap to for great grip and also make this sword a great display piece. Comes with a richly detailed display sheath.
Most swords offered today are interpretive copies of antiquities from feudal Japan. They were made for warriors of small stature who seldom rose above five and a half feet. As skillfully designed as these swords are, they may not be perfectly suited for the twenty-first century warrior, who benefited from contemporary advances in childhood nutrition and healthcare and grew up to be a substantially taller, stronger, and more athletic version of his historical counterpart.
As a way of compensating for this size disparity, Cold Steel has created the Dragonfly Series. These swords feature thicker, wider and heavier blades, which mirror the Emperor Series in respect to heat treatment, polish, quality of furnishings, and attention to detail, but with a few departures.
Most noticeable are the distinctive teal-green silk cord-wrap and black samé (ray skin) used on the handles and the black iron furniture that bears the dragonfly motif. Also, the polished blades are more strongly curved than the Emperor blades and terminate in a long "iris leaf" point for maximum cutting and slashing potential.
Additionally, these swords come with two protective bags. There is a blue travel bag and an intricately decorative display bag that's made from the finest heavy silk metallic brocade.
