Imperial Citadel Katana - Limited Edition

Imperial Citadel Katana - Limited Edition

This is the fourth of the Limited Edition katana from Citadel Knives and Swords. Each sword is signed by the smith on the nakago with the sword number, limited to just 30 swords before the model is retired. The Imperial katana is themed in the symbolic flower of the royal family of Japan, the Chrysanthemum. In addition the golden color of the handle and saya represent the warrior's courage. A sword fit for an emperor, or his most trusted general. This is an exceptionally well balanced sword with a hand forged and differentially hardened DNH7 High Carbon Steel blade. Each blade is hand polished using traditional stones and powders to produce an authentic look. This sword features a full length bo-hi or fuller to lighten and balance the blade. The hi continues through the habaki and into the nakago, with the copper habaki forged to follow the hi. Each fitting (tsuba, fuchi, kashira) is meticulously hand crafted in pure iron. Each piece is therefore slightly unique and held to a high standard of excellence. Citadel is one of only a handful of sword makers worldwide that still produces fittings in this manner. The tsuka is carved to each individual sword ensuring a tight friction fit with a full same-gawa wrap. The ito or handle wrapping is two-tone hand wrapped silk imported from Japan wrapped in a Katate-Maki or battle-wrap style. The saya is a work of art in its own right, showing off the masterful lacquerwork that Citadel is capable of achieving in the excepational golden metal-fleck style. Each saya is painstakingly hand carved for the individual sword ensuring a proper snug fit. An astounding and notable sword, once 30 of these samurai swords are produced we will make no more. Certificate of Authenticity is included.
