Forged for the Emperor himself, the Imperial Citadel Katana is a masterful work of art that only the noblest of samurai may carry, adorned in the golden courage of a warriors heart with the symbol of the royal family of Japan, the chrysanthemum. Polished with traditional stones and powders, this incredible sword has been hand forged from differentially hardened DNH7 high-carbon steel, providing an authentic look and build. With a trademark curved spine and stunning bo-hi, this katana proves strong, lightweight, and durable all while featuring traditional Japanese ornaments. Pure iron has been designed with the chrysanthemum and constructed by hand to create the fuchi, kashira, and tsuba. The tsuka, or handle, has been crafted from sting ray skin to suit the individual sword, wrapped in two-toned, Japanese imported silk in battle-wrap style. Carved to fit its individual sword perfectly, the saya, or scabbard, is lacquered in beautiful golden metal-fleck style. Be it for decoration or use, the Imperial Citadel Katana is sure to display your impressive status.
This katana is part of a limited edition set, partnered with the Imperial Tanto. Each blade is signed by the smith on the tang along with the sword number. A stamped Certificate of Authenticity is included with each piece.
