The Cold Steel Warrior Series Chisa katana is an outstanding example of this hugely popular Japanese sword design. This sword shares the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as more expensive models. Measuring 36" in length, the Chisa katana features a 1055 carbon steel 24 1/2" blade. The handle is covered in ray skin and wrapped in black braid cord with brass menuki accents. Includes black lacquered wood sheath and blue violet cover bag. This is simply an excellent sword at an unbelievably reasonable price! Cold Steel, 88BCK.
