A beautiful symbol of the circular journey of enlightenment, the lotus seed starts its life in the muck before growing in to a stalk to emerge from the muddy water to blossom. As the bloom fades the maturing seeds fall back in to the mud to continue the cycle of rebirth, which is so beautifully depicted in our Lotus Seed Daisho set from Dragon King. Like the lotus blossom the Lotus Seed Katana transitions from various shade of violet from the wrapped cotton tsuka-ito , the gold and purple sageo on the smooth deep, dark brown lacquered saya.
Copper seeds accent the blackened furniture throughout the handle. The immaculately detailed budding seed pod following the shedding of its pedals centers the entire piece. Silver dragonfly menuki, seppa and habaki splash highlights across the subtly waisted 12 3/8” tsuka. The 27 ½” forge T10 blade features a midare or irregular hamon much like the path of life with all of its ups and downs. This light, long and fast 41 ¼” katana cuts quick and makes a bold statement both physically and metaphorically without being audacious in design.
A samurai wore two swords, the matching Lotus Seed Wakizashi is also available to complete your collection.
