Previous Item Next Item Shinken Cold Steel Katana

Cold Steel Katana are know for being tough.  We use them at the dojo for steel on steel kenjutsu were they stand up to the impact damage.  Cold steel offers a wide range of swords from the short Chisa Katana to the long O Katana.  They also offer a Nodachi that could be classified as a Nagimaki (Hybrid weapon with a Naginata blade and a sword handle). 

Dragonfly Katana Get Item Price Get Item Details

Cold Steel has created the Dragonfly Series with thicker, wider and heavier blades, which mirror our Imperial Series in respect to heat treatment, polish, quality of furnishings, and attention to detail, but with a few new departures.  Most noticeable are the distinctive teal-green silk cord-wrap and black same' (ray skin) used on the handles and the black iron furniture that bears the dragonfly motif. Also, the polished blades are more strongly curved than our Imperial blades and terminate in a long "iris leaf" point for maximum cutting and slashing potential.

Cold Steel has used only traditional materials for our 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 Same' (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as we can possibly make it.  It features a  fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blade, 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).
