The Cold Steel Gold Lion Katana represents a Samurai's "every day carry sword" for personal protection and the defense of his Lord his family and his home. Significantly lighter than some of our other heavier-duty Katana it is not only faster in-hand but easier and more comfortable to carry when tucked into an Obi and worn all day.
The Katana's Menuki bears the symbol of the Japanese Shisa (Lion Dog) a guardian or protector - a fitting motif for this beautiful lightweight sword.
Measuring just under thirty inches the Gold Lion Katana's blade is made from expertly hand honed and highly polished Damascus steel with a Hamaguri grind peaked Iori Mune spine and undulating clay-tempered Hamon.
The black iron Tsuba Fuchi and Kashira all have gleaming 24 carat gold leaf accents and the handle features white ray-skin and a black silk cord wrap.
