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.
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 health care and grew up to be a substantially taller, stronger, and more athletic version of his historical counterpart. Here is where Cold Steel Swords come in.
As a way of compensating for this size disparity, Cold Steel has created the Dragonfly Katana Series. These Samurai Swords feature thicker, wider and heavier blades, which mirror the Cold Steel Imperial Katana Series in respect to heat treatment, polish, quality of furnishings, and attention to detail, but with a few new departures.
Most noticeable are the distinctive teal-green silk cord-wrap and black samé (ray skin) used on the handles of the Dragonfly Katana and the black iron furniture that bears the dragonfly motif. Also, the polished blades are more strongly curved than the Cold Steel Imperial blades and terminate in a long ï¿½iris leafï¿½ point for maximum cutting and slashing potential. Additionally, these Katana Swords come with two protective bags, one silk which is for show, and the other for travel.
