Shinwa Maroon Nodachi Damascus Steel Sword
This excellent Shinwa sword incorporates the weapon design that was wielded by Zatoichi, the famous blind swordsman character of Japanese films and television. Measuring 40 1/4" in length, the Damascus steel of this sword’s blade is hand forged, heat tempered, folded to deliver 2000 layers of outstanding cutting power, and is build to perform with a razor sharp edge. The 28 3/8" straight blade is tightly held by a hardwood handle and slides smoothly into the matching hardwood sheath. Both the handle and sheath are finished in a smooth maroon lacquer. This is another fine example of the reputable craftsmanship that defines all Shinwa swords! Shinwa, KZ351MD.
