COLD STEEL EMPEROR SERIES TANTO
The Cold Steel factory has used only traditional materials for their Japanese sword’s fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver brass. The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and each hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the sword’s aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as Cold Steel can possibly make it. All feature fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blades, each heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove). All come complete with a black lacquered scabbard and a blue-violet cover bag. Be sure to check out the video review of the Emperor series on the Emperor Katana page to witness the raw power of these beautiful swords! Specifications: Weight: 18.8 oz.
